Yes, Alberta Health Services has guidelines for cleaning public facilities.

Alberta Health Services has health guidelines for cleaning public facilities during outbreaks of respiratory illnesses in the community.

Recommendations include increasing daily cleaning and disinfection of common surfaces. "Pay particular attention to door knobs, light switches, staff rooms, desktops, washrooms and other high touch surfaces." It also outlines how to make a bleach water solution and urges following general prevention guidelines like washing your hands and avoiding touching your face.

As playgrounds are also now open again, there are also specific recommendations in place to keep families safe, like carrying hand sanitizer and encouraging children to refrain from sharing toys.

The federal government also has similar guidelines.
