New Health & Safety Rules at the King Eddy

*UPDATE: The Restrictions Exemption Program is no longer in effect as of February 9, 2022 and proof of vaccination is not required for entry. Please refer to  for the latest public health information. The City of Calgary’s mask mandate will remain in effect until at least March 1, 2022.

Dear friends of the King Eddy,

In accordance with the Restrictions Exemption Program, all visitors to the King Eddy (aged 12 and over) will have to show proof they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, proof of a medical exemption, or proof that they have tested negative for COVID-19 within 72 hours prior to visiting the Eddy. Guests will also need to bring government issued photo ID that matches the name of the health records.


  • Proof of full vaccination from at least 14 days prior to service (Alberta’s vaccine record with QR Code is now the only valid Alberta-issued proof of vaccination), or
  • Documentation of a medical exemption, or
  • Proof of a privately-paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service (tests from AHS, Alberta Precision Laboratories, and at-home rapid test kits are not accepted).

To enter spaces participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program, people ages 12 and older must be fully vaccinated (at least 14 days from second dose of a 2-dose vaccine or a single dose of Janssen).

  • Alberta vaccine record with QR Code (paper or digital) is now the only valid Alberta-issued proof of vaccination accepted by operators participating in REP.
  • Other accepted forms of proof of vaccination include:
    • Other provincial vaccine records with QR codes
    • First Nation vaccine records
    • Canadian Armed Forces vaccine records with QR codes
    • U.S. Military proof of vaccination and ID card
    • Out-of-country vaccine records
  • Personal identification that matches the vaccine record is also required for all adults 18 and over.

To enter spaces participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program, people aged 12 and older can show proof of a negative test result.

  • The test result should be a written or printed copy that indicates the individual has tested negative for COVID-19 on a Health Canada approved rapid antigen, rapid PCR, or lab based PCR test approved by Health Canada or the lab accreditation body of jurisdiction.
    • Valid test results should be a written or printed copy that clearly outlines the type of test, time of sample collection, clear indication of a negative result, and laboratory that completed the test, if applicable.
    • Photos of a rapid test or result taken offsite is not sufficient.
    • A self-test completed offsite or self-produced documentation of a negative test result is not valid.
    • Do not bring completed self-tests or rapid tests to businesses due to communicable disease risk.
  • Tests must not be from the Alberta Health Services public COVID-19 testing system.

To enter spaces participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program, people 12 and older can provide documentation of a medical exemption.

  • A valid medical exemption is the original signed letter from a physician or nurse practitioner that includes:
    • date which the letter was provided
    • person’s name that matches their identification
    • physician’s or nurse practitioner’s complete information, including:
      • name, phone number, contact information, professional registration number and signature
      • statement that there is a medical reason for not being fully vaccinated against COVID-19
      • duration that the exemption is valid


As vaccination status is considered personal information, King Eddy management respects the privacy of our staff, artists, and patrons and will not be keeping personal health information on file once it is provided.


  • Mandatory masks worn by all staff, more frequent hand washing protocols, and rigorous cleaning standards.
  • Masks must be worn by all guests when not seated at their table.
  • Hand sanitizer stations for guests upon entry.

Thank you for your support throughout the pandemic, and allowing us to continue our legacy as a cornerstone of music, community, and culture.

The King Eddy Team
