Alberta premier Jason Kenney, officials offer COVID-19 update after Thanksgiving long weekend | FULL

CA, 13 Oct 2021
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney will be joined by Health Minister Jason Copping, chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw and AHS CEO Dr. Verna Yiu for an update on COVID-19 in the province on Tuesday.

This will be the first COVID-19 update following the Thanksgiving long weekend.

Kenney was quick to remind Albertans prior to the long weekend that Thanksgiving 2020 spurred the start of the province’s second wave of COVID-19.

“The second wave of COVID, which put severe pressure on our hospitals last fall, started very clearly around the family table of millions of Alberta households,” he said.

The premier and chief medical officer of health said there have been positive signs and trends when it comes to case numbers, hospitalizations and the overall positivity rate as of late. Active cases of COVID-19 have slowly started to decline, hovering at around 18,400 Thursday after hitting a peak of about 22,000.
