EDMONTON – Alberta recorded 452 new cases of COVID-19 on Victoria Day Monday, with most of the province’s students ready to return to class tomorrow.

Seven new deaths were also reported on Monday, bringing the number of Albertans who have died from COVID-19 to 2,183. An Alberta in his 20s was among the deaths reported on Monday, the tenth person under the age of 30 to die from the COVID-19.

Active cases continued to decline, to 13,608, the lowest since April 9.

The number of patients receiving care in intensive care units remained high at 161. These patients are included in the total of 569 hospitalized COVID-19 patients.

The province administered just over five thousand tests on Sunday with a positivity rate of 8.91%.

More than 2.17 million Albertans, including more than 57% of those over the age of 12, have now received at least a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. Over 353,000 received a second dose.

Premier Jason Kenney hinted last week that the province’s latest plan to reopen will be released in the coming days.

The province’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr Deena Hinshaw, is also expected to return for an in-person update earlier this week.
