Alberta chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Premier Jason Kenney and Health Minister Tyler Shandro will provide an update on the COVID-19 situation in the province on Monday.
Albertans are expected to learn Monday if COVID-19 restrictions will be eased even more across the province.
Last week, Hinshaw said March 1 would be the soonest the province would move into Step 2 of its path forward relaunch plan.
Step 1 started in Alberta on Feb. 8, which saw restaurants reopen to in-person dining, one-on-one indoor fitness offered and some children’s sports and performance activities were allowed to resume under some health restrictions.
Step 2 would see the potential of restrictions being eased at retail locations, banquet halls, community halls, conference centres, hotels, indoor fitness and children’s sports and performance activities.
The province’s “Path Forward” is a four-step approach to easing restrictions based on a number of indicators, with the main focus being hospitalizations. The province said Step 2 would be considered if 450 or fewer people are in hospital. As of Sunday afternoon, there were 250 people in hospital with COVID-19 in Alberta, 46 of whom were being treated in intensive care.
