Cochrane adds 35 new COVID-19 cases since April 1st

Cochrane has added 35 new cases since Thursday for a total of 82 active cases.

Across the province, nearly 4,000 new cases of COVID-19 were added over the long weekend, with 1,081 new cases recorded on April 1; 1,071 on April 2; 948 on April 3; and 887 on April 4.

Alberta's top doctor says an outbreak of the COVID-19 variant first found in Brazil appears to be linked to a large employer with multiple sites across Western Canada.

This now means variant cases make up 39 per cent of all active cases in the province, with our positivity rate at 9.9 per cent.

Hinshaw said the spread was confined to three work sites in the Central and North zones where employees travelled between sites.

Beginning Tuesday at 8 A.M., additional Albertans will be eligible to book a COVID-19 immunization as part of phase 2B through AHS online & Health Link 8-1-1.

She says there has also been an outbreak of five cases - one linked to the Brazilian variant - at a separate Calgary zone workplace.

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is reinstituting some public-health restrictions, saying that variant cases of COVID-19 continue to soar and are on track to swamp the health system by mid-May.

There are 312 people in the hospital with 76 in ICU.

Four new deaths were reported on Monday.

There are 10,582 active cases in the province.
