Alberta, we have an UPDATE!

February 9, 2022
To our Hudsons Family ❤️
Last night’s announcements conveyed that Alberta is removing restrictions to try to move past the COVID-19 pandemic. Starting today, we will no longer require proof of vaccination to enter our pubs.
 
We want to make it clear that we have always followed and implemented restrictions when science has proved it to be necessary. At this time, we trust that the doctors and experts have made a decision they thought was safe. While it feels like a big change, we have confidence that it is one that has been carefully considered. We would like to note that the restrictions on liquor service times, interactive activities, and people-per-table limits remain in place at this time.
 
Our standards of cleanliness will stay the same. We will maintain our rigorous cleaning protocols to provide a safe and enjoyable dining experience for all of our guests.
 
These past two years have been challenging for everyone. We want to thank you for sticking with us and being patient through all the changes. We hope that last night’s announcements signify that the COVID-19 pandemic is coming to an end, but we acknowledge that it is not over yet. We are excited about the future and cannot wait to welcome everyone back. ❤️
