Alberta putting additional targeted COVID-19 restrictions into place | FULL

CA, 30 Apr 2021
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced on Thursday that the province was adding new targeted COVID-19 restrictions into place as cases continue to rise.

Starting Friday new measures will apply to municipalities or regions where there are at least 350 cases per 100,000 people and 250 active cases.

The communities affected immediately are:

-Fort McMurray
-City of Red Deer
-City of Grande Prairie
-City of Calgary
-City of Airdrie
-Strathcona County
-City of Lethbridge
-City of Edmonton

New measures will apply to junior and senior high schools, and sports and fitness activities in these communities.

All junior and senior high school students in these regions will shift to online learning. K-6 students will continue in-class learning unless otherwise approved by Alberta Education to shift on-line.

All indoor fitness activities in affected areas will be prohibited starting April 30. All indoor recreation facilities must close. Outdoor fitness activities can continue following current restrictions.

These targeted restrictions will remain in place for at least two weeks for any community or area that reaches the set targets. After 14 days, the enhanced measures will be lifted once the municipality falls back below the threshold.
