Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw announced there has been an outbreak at the Horizon work camp in Northern Alberta as five positive cases have been confirmed at the camp.

Over 195,000 tests with another 4,000 processed in the past 24 hours.

Premier Jason Kenney announced stage one of the reopening plan will go ahead tomorrow in most of the province. Due to a high number of COVID-19 cases, Calgary and Brooks will have a delayed start. Businesses listed in stage one for both cities will be spread out over the course of two weeks.

The Alberta reopening plan does not apply for Lloydminster businesses as city officials say the city is following the Saskatchewan Re-opening Plan.
