COVID-19: Alberta Premier Kenney unveils plans for summer reopening | LIVE

Premier Jason Kenney will be joined by other officials on Wednesday to provide an update on Alberta’s plans to safely relax COVID-19 restrictions.

Alberta’s latest COVID-19 daily case counts and active case total shows recently introduced public health restrictions are working to curb the third wave of the disease, according to the province’s chief medical officer of health.

Stricter measures were reintroduced at the beginning of this month, including moving schools online and shutting down personal wellness services, amid surging numbers of cases and hospitalizations.

Dr. Deena Hinshaw said on Tuesday that since then, the province’s number of active cases have declined 52 per cent from the peak earlier this month.

When asked about whether there are specific benchmarks guiding that process, Hinshaw said the details about the specific criteria would be made public “this week,” but reiterated that vaccination rates and prevention of transmission — and therefore reducing stress on hospitals and ICUs – are still key guiding factors in the reopening plan.

“We all know what we need to do to reduce transmission – we’ve all been doing it for a long time — so the more we can do that in the coming weeks, the more successful we’ll be able to be in moving toward the kind of summer we all want to see.”
