Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw will speak to the media one day after the "Open For Summer" plan that outlines how the province will relax COVID-19 health restrictions was unveiled.
Hinshaw was not at Wednesday’s briefing as according to Kenney she had the day "booked off as a personal day quite some time ago."
The "Open For Summer" plan outlines how different sectors and activities will be allowed to reopen based on two key benchmarks: COVID-19 immunizations rates and the number of Albertans in hospital.
The three-stage plan ends in lifting all public health restrictions “in only a few weeks…just in time for summer,” Premier Jason Kenney said.
Each stage will take effect two weeks after the vaccination and hospitalization thresholds are met.
