On Thursday, Alberta's chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw announced a record breaking 1,854 new cases of COVID-19 in the province, bringing the active case total to 17,743. This includes 511 people in hospital, 97 in ICU.
With 19,622 tests done in the past 24 hours, the province’s positivity rate sits at 9.5 per cent. Fourteen Albertans have died since the last provincial COVID-19 update.
During this briefing, the province’s chief medical officer turned her attention to rural Albertans and some resistance to following public health orders.
“COVID-19 is not a Calgary problem or an Edmonton problem,” Hinshaw said “This is a provincial problem within the context of a global problem.”
She said the relatively low rates during the first wave in communities with low population or at a distance from urban centres may have lulled some rural Albertans into a false sense of security.
Hinshaw also clarified the guidance for car-pooling, saying, where possible, car-pooling should be done with members of the same household. Where that isn’t possible, two metres of distancing should be provided, with all occupants masking, washing/sanitizing their hands before and after the drive, and even sanitizing the area they sat in.
