Burnt Toast Studio, a not-for-profit artist collective that supports emerging artists in Calgary, is continuing to do so during the pandemic — with a #stayhome twist. 

The Alberta government is allowing restaurants to open for dine-in service in phase one of the economic relaunch as early as May 25, after being closed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but a seeming majority of restaurants throughout Calgary have decided to remain closed to the public, while a handful will be opening as soon as possible. 

As eager golfers return to the greens following easing restrictions in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, courses like Country Hills Golf club are pleased for the positive response, even as they deal with ongoing challenges associated with distancing measures.

As the province prepares to allow businesses to reopen in the wake of COVID-19 closures, business owners included in phase one of the province’s relaunch strategy, along with Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi, are questioning whether the timeline for reopening is realistic.
