Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw told reporters on Tuesday that "decisions have not yet been made" on any COVID-19 restriction changes as the holidays approach.
She explained the Omicron variant’s recent detection in Alberta, along with “plateauing” COVID-19 hospital and ICU rates are giving officials pause.
“It’s important to give ourselves time to look at the early trends of Omicron as well as looking closely at our own data,” Alberta’s chief medical officer of health said.
Hinshaw couldn’t say when Albertans might expect to hear about any rule changes for the holidays.
