COVID-19 and LESA Programs

COVID-19 and LESA Programs

Last updated September 20, 2021

LESA has a number of programs planned for the upcoming educational year delivering quality continuing legal education content across a variety of practice areas. Some of our programs are being offered as in-person programs. For those who prefer to join us online, we will also continue to offer webinars and plan to livestream from our in-house LESA Programs Space in Edmonton. 

Our COVID-19 protocols are outlined below. LESA will continue to monitor the COVID-19 landscape in Alberta. If the protocols or restrictions change between the time of registration and the date of a program running, you will receive an email from us detailing any necessary changes or added measures. 

Restrictions Exemption Program 

LESA will be implementing the Government of Alberta’s Restrictions Exemption Program for single-day in-person programs and will require program attendees, faculty, and staff to produce proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test before attending an in-person program.  

To attend a single-day LESA program in-person, you will need:  

  1. Valid paper or digital vaccine record that shows your name, vaccine type, and date of administration; and  
  2. Government issued photo identification that matches the vaccine record. 

From September 20 to October 25, proof of partial vaccination (one dose) will be accepted provided that the dose was given more than 2 weeks before the program date. After October 25, proof of full vaccination (two doses) will be required. 

If you choose to show proof of a negative test result, the test must have been completed within 72 hours of the program start time, and must be procured at your cost. The test must be in line with the requirements of the Restrictions Exemption Program.  

If you have any questions about LESA’s participation in the Restrictions Exemption Program, please contact our Executive Director, Christine Sanderman, by calling 780.969.0558 or by emailing [email protected].   

Mandatory Vaccination Policy for Multi-Day Programs

To attend a multi-day LESA program in-person, you will need:

  1. Valid paper or digital vaccine record that shows your name, vaccine type, and date of administration; and
  2. Government issued photo identification that matches the vaccine record.

Proof of full vaccination (two doses) will be required.

If you have any questions about LESA’s mandatory vaccination policy, please contact our Executive Director, Christine Sanderman, by calling 780.969.0558 or by emailing [email protected].

COVID-19 Protocols at a Program 

LESA continues to follow all provincial and local public health regulations and remains committed to ensuring the health and safety of all attendees, volunteers, staff, and their families. At our in-person programs, masks will be required of all attendees and staff unless in the act of eating or drinking, all surfaces will be sanitized in advance of the program running, and hand sanitizer will be provided. We will encourage physical distancing wherever possible.  

For in-person programs that include food service, we will provide individualized pre-packaged meals (for full-day programs) and snacks. Program faculty and LESA staff may remove their masks when presenting. By attending any in-person program, attendees agree to abide by applicable government, public health, and LESA regulations and rules, including rules relating to wearing masks and vaccinations. 

Anyone who is feeling unwell should not attend an in-person program and should contact us for options on attending or viewing the program virtually or to move to a later session. If you become unwell during an in-person program, please notify LESA staff who will assist you and provide further direction.
