Throughout Covid-19, Metro Cinema has worked very hard and been very lucky to avoid any known cases associated with our staff or patrons.
Unfortunately, one of Metro’s staff members tested positive for Covid-19 on December 23. This staff member is experiencing mild symptoms and is now resting and isolating at home. While this person did not work in a public-facing role, several of Metro’s staff members were in close contact.
Metro has a small group of staff, so to allow these close contacts the opportunity to self-isolate, we have made the difficult decision to close temporarily out of an abundance of caution.
Metro will remain closed from December 23, 2021, to January 9, 2022. Advance purchased tickets will be refunded.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience this may cause. We take the safety of our staff and community very seriously. All Metro’s staff are fully vaccinated, provided with PPE, and Metro’s policies remain above and beyond government and AHS regulations.
During a time when all Albertans are recommended to reduce personal interactions, we feel that this is a responsible decision, despite the disappointment caused by these cancellations.
Thank you for your support, and we wish you a safe and restful holiday season.
