Alberta Restriction Exemption Program
Daunais McKay + Harms has made the decision to participate in the Restriction Exemption Program (“REP”) implemented by our Provincial Government. Our decision was made to best protect our clients, staff, and their families during this pandemic, and to further ensure that we are taking all reasonable steps to continue to provide the best possible service to our clients.
If you wish to meet a lawyer or staff member in person at our office, then you will be asked for the following information:
1. Proof of Vaccination (in the form of the COVID-19 Immunization Records provided by “MyHealth Records”, the pharmacy, First Nations, or physician immunization record) which prominently displays your name, the type of vaccine and the date of administration; or
2. A valid Government of Alberta Vaccination QR Code (when available); or
3. Documentation confirming a medical exemption in the form of an original signed letter from a physician or nurse practitioner setting out your name, the contact information of the professional signing the letter, a statement indicating that there is a medical reason for the exemption and the duration that the exemption is valid; or
4. Proof of a Negative COVID-19 test result. The test must be a privately paid for COVID-19 PCR or Rapid test that has been completed within 72 hours of your attendance at our office. The test result may not be an Alberta Health Services or Precision Laboratories Test.
If you are not willing or able to comply with the above noted request, we will be happy to meet with you by telephone or video conference, which has proven often effective through this pandemic.
Please note, under the REP rules as we are considered to be an “out of scope” business operator, even with proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test, you will still be required to wear a mask when attending our office.
