Medical Workers in the province are pleading with Albertans to take health restrictions seriously this Easter weekend as COVID cases continue to spike. Yesterday nearly 900 cases were announced, the highest number of new infections in 11 weeks. Ontario and BC are headed into serious lockdowns this weekend as cases are skyrocketing there too. Premiere Jason Kenney will appear with Dr Hinshaw on today’s press conference.
The Calgary Flames had their game against the Vancouver Canucks cancelled last night due to COVID protocol. Two players from the Canucks tested positive for the virus, as well as a training staff member. The Flames are still set to take on Edmonton tomorrow night.
