During COVID-19, the Alberta pork sector continues to operate; however, the situation can change quickly. The board and staff at Alberta Pork have been monitoring the various events and issues that could affect producers and the pork industry. There have been almost daily conference calls at the national, regional and provincial levels with government and industry leaders, to help ensure our industry operates as smoothly as possible given the current situation.
Per the COVID-19 mandatory workplace restrictions announced by the Government of Alberta on December 8, 2020, all Alberta Pork staff will work remotely from home between December 13, 2020 and January 11, 2021. Staff remain reachable by email and phone.
