The provincial positivity rate is 12.01 per cent, the highest since the onset of the pandemic.

A high daily report of 130 new cases is reported for the south zone and Waterton (I.D. No. 4) is the only area without new cases and also the only area without active cases.

Effective yesterday, Alberta's Covid hot spots have new public health measures implemented. This includes Lethbridge, Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Airdrie and Strathcona County.

Indoor fitness – effective April 30

  • All indoor fitness activities are prohibited. This includes:
    • all group physical activities, such as team sports, fitness classes and  training sessions
    • all one-on-one lessons and training activities
    • all practices, training and games
  • Outdoor fitness activities may continue under provincewide restrictions currently in place, including individual or household one-on-one training with a trainer.

Indoor sport and recreation – effective April 30

  • All youth and adult indoor group physical activities, including team sports and one-on-one training sessions, are prohibited.
  • Outdoor sport and recreation activities may continue under provincewide restrictions currently in place:
    • Outdoor team sports where two-metre distancing cannot be maintained at all times (such as basketball, volleyball, soccer, football, slo-pitch and road hockey) remain prohibited.
    • Outdoor fitness training is allowed, as are physically distanced group fitness classes with a maximum of 10 participants.
    • Outdoor group physical activity with different households must be limited to 10 people or fewer and two-metre distancing must be maintained at all times.
  • All indoor recreation facilities must close. Outdoor recreation amenities can be open to public access unless specifically closed by public health order.

Schools – Starting Monday, May 3

  • K-6 students will continue in-classroom learning unless otherwise approved by Alberta Education to shift to online learning.

Curfew

The government will implement a curfew where case rates are significantly high, specifically case rates above 1,000 per 100,000, and if a municipality or region requests it. Details will be announced prior to any curfew being implemented.

These restrictions will be in effect a minimum of two weeks, even if the area drops below the threshold at any point.

After 14 days, the enhanced measures will be lifted once the municipality falls back below the threshold.

All other current public health restrictions, including masking, physical distancing, prohibitions on social gatherings and working from home requirements remain in place provincewide.

Phases 2C and 2D of vaccination opened Friday.

People in these groups include:

  • Albertans between the ages of 50 and 64
  • First Nations, Métis and Inuit between the ages of 35 and 49
  • Staff and residents who provide care or support to Albertans in facilities or in the community previously not offered immunization
  • Caregivers of Albertans who are most at risk of severe outcomes
  • Firefighters and front-line policing and provincial sheriffs who interact with residents at shelters, correctional facilities and remand centres
  • Canadian Border Security Agency staff

Covid-19 vaccinations continue, with 299,929 people fully immunized with both doses and a total of 1,597,666 doses administered across the province.

The shots have led to a total of 263 adverse reactions to date, representing 0.02 per cent, or about two in 10,000.

All working Albertans can access three hours of paid, job-protected leave to get each dose of the vaccine and isolated seniors and those with mobility challenges can call 211 for help finding a ride to an appointment.

One case of VITT, a rare blood clot disorder connnected to the AstraZeneca vaccine, was confirmed April 16. The patient is recovering.

Vaccines take time to work. Both the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines show protection starting 12 to 14 days after the first dose. You are still vulnerable to contracting the virus before this time, and even afterwards there is still a small chance of contracting the virus or passing it along to others.


Those who have been immunized must continue to follow public health measures in order to protect themselves and others from Covid-19.

R values

April 19 to 25, 2021

R values are provided weekly on Mondays.

Also known as the reproduction number, R values describe whether cases are currently increasing, decreasing or staying the same (i.e. the average number of people someone infected with Covid-19 will infect).

If the R value is one, then an infected person will, on average, infect one other person.

An R value below one means the rate of transmission was decreasing during that period and if it is above one, it was increasing.

Current rates are in bold. As an indication of trends, values below are statistics from Dec. 7 to 13, 2020, to the most recent.
