Coronavirus: Alberta continues public health measures despite downward trend | FULL

Alberta’s chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw announced during her daily update on COVID-19 Thursday that the province was not relaxing public health measures despite a downward trend in several key metrics.

Hinshaw said that she was “proud of the sacrifices and community spirit Albertans have shown” but that the province “was not in the clear just yet.”
