COVID-19: City of Red Deer at two active cases

No deaths reported Tuesday

Alberta confirmed 41 new COVID-19 cases Tuesday, bringing the total number of active cases to 549.

Starting Tuesday, up to 200 people are allowed to gather for audience-style outdoor community events such as fireworks, festivals and rodeos in Alberta.

“We’re making this shift based on several factors, including an analysis of how the virus is spreading in Alberta, and the reduced risk of gatherings held outdoors,” said chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw, adding participants still have to stay two metres apart or wear a mask.

There are no changes to the participation limits of indoor gatherings or private celebrations. Indoor social gatherings are limited to 50 people and indoor seated events remain at 100.

Outdoor private or social events such as weddings or funerals are limited to 100 people.

The active case number of COVID-19 cases in the province Tuesday was lower than Monday’s number, 559.

The city of Red Deer had an increase of one active case Tuesday, bringing the total active cases to two.

The central zone remains at four active cases, with none in hospital. To date, the number of confirmed cases in the local zone is 93, of which 88 have recovered. There has been one death reported in the zone in the past.

Beaver County had two active cases Monday, which went down to one Tuesday, while the Town of Olds remains at one active case.
