On the eve of the province moving to Step Two of reopening and most COVID-19 restrictions being lifted, the numbers continue to trend down. 

Since Friday there were 1,435 new PCR confirmed cases of COVID-19 reported in the three-day period.

There are 1,224 people in hospital with 83 of those in ICU. 

There are currently 9,188 active cases in Alberta. 

Sadly, another 14 deaths were reported over the weekend bringing the total to 3,912 in the province. 

To date, 8,498,261 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine have been administered. 

Ninety point one per cent of the population has received one dose of the vaccine while 86.5 per cent of the population 12 years and older have received two doses. 

According to the AHS website, Cochrane is reporting 73 active COVID-19 cases while Rocky View County has 58 cases. 

As of March 1, the province will move to Step Two of reopening. That will see the removal of most COVID-19 restrictions including gathering and capacity limits as well as masking rules in most settings. Masks will still be required on public transit and in continuing and acute care settings.
