The team store at Commonwealth Stadium is also open again with temporary hours from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

COVID-19 precautions

Since Alberta is in Stage 3 of the province’s Open for Summer COVID-19 plan, there are no mandatory public health restrictions in place when attending an Elks game.

But the organization said it will be taking several steps to try and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Fans will see hand sanitizer stations around the stadium and the use of masks will be encouraged, but not mandatory. The stadium will also have disposable masks on hand for anyone who may want one but not have one.

The organization will also be asking fans to be aware of distancing while in the stadium and to stay home if they have any COVID-19 symptoms.
