Here is a summary thread of today’s #COVID19AB update. 6,811 Albertans have recovered leaving 386 active cases. 53 people are hospitalized with 6 in ICUs. There are 30 new cases out of 7,746 tests. There have been no new deaths. We’ve now surpassed 325,000 tests. (1/9)
I want to highlight two First Nation success stories. Blood Tribe Chief and Council have worked diligently to mitigate #COVID19AB impacts – established a 35-bed clinical isolation facility and delivered 2,540 food and cleaning packages to members on + off-reserve. (2/9)
Whitefish Lake First Nation, through its Goodfish Lake Business Corporation, is producing reusable cotton masks for every Elder, employee and household on reserve & fire-resistant masks for energy companies. (3/9)
Many people are excited that stage 2 has arrived. It is important to remember #COVID19AB is still circulating in our communities & will do so for many months. (4/9)
We’re seeing younger Albertans testing positive, particularly those 20-29. 60% of our active cases are under 40. Young Albertans may not be at risk for severe outcomes but their actions are critical in protecting those who are higher risk. We’re all in this together. (5/9)
Edmonton cases have risen from 58 to 149 in 3 weeks. About 2/3 are linked to known sources or outbreaks. We’re watching these cases closely and will communicate if there is cause for alarm. (6/9)
The increase in cases is not due to recent protests. Transmission would take days to work through the system. We’ve seen a rise in testing numbers as those who attended protests have gotten tested, but there are no identified cases where a protest was determined the source. (7/9)
The freedom to protest is critical, as is preventing COVID-19. We’ve worked with groups to develop a guidance document for organizers & attendees. If you participate, please stay 2m apart, wear a mask while attending, use ABTraceTogether & get tested. (8/9)
Thanks to everyone for continuing to be mindful of your actions and follow public health guidelines. We are getting through this together, and must continue to protect each other in the days ahead. (9/9)
