Premier says he's been in close contact with a COVID-19 case.

He's in self isolation until November 23.

New targeted measures. #yyc #yeg #COVID19AB
He's awaiting COVID test results.

"It's almost certain that we have not yet seen the peak of the current increase," he said. #yyc #yeg #COVID19AB
816 cases in the past 24 hours. #yyc

50 active continuing care outbreaks. Three have more than 100 cases each. #yeg #covid19AB
"We are at a dangerous juncture in our province," Premier Kenney said.

The growing numbers are challenging their ability to deliver non-urgent care. #yyc #yeg #COVID19AB

"we have to bend the curve back down," he said.
New measures: (temporary, time-limited, reduce close contact with others) Nov. 13 to 27.

- Temporary end to group fitness, team sports, and group performance - URBAN CENTRES (and surrounding areas) #yyc #yeg #COVID19AB
Indoor group fitness and sports. NOT OUTDOOR. #yyc #yeg #COVID19AB

Not junior, university or pro sports.
Also includes theatre, singing and dancing groups. #yyc #yeg #covid19ab
Beginning tomorrow, all restaurants, bars, lounges and pubs in areas that are under enhanced status - With more than 50 active cases per hundred thousand people must stop liquor sales by 10 pm and close by 11.

#yyc #yeg #COVID19AB
Premier connects longer liquor sales to people poses a risk.

Another restriction: No social gatherings in homes in those same enhanced areas (50 cases per 100,000 rate.) #yyc #yeg #COVID19AB
50 person limit to weddings and funerals - under areas with enhanced status. #yyc #yeg #covid19ab
Faith organizations are being asked to limit services to 1/3 of capacity. Again - enhanced status areas. #yyc #yeg #covid19
Finally, they're asking businesses to reduce staff in office buildings. #yyc #yeg #covid19AB
"COVID is starting to win and we can't let that happen," said the Premier. #yyc #yeg #covid91Ab
Two week time is "our last chance" to avoid further, more significant measures. #yyc #yeg #COVID19AB
