Alberta is just 10 days away from entering Stage 3 of the province's 'Open for Summer' plan, and COVID-19 numbers are looking promising.

Over the weekend Dr. Hinshaw tweeted that Alberta residents are stepping up to roll up their sleeves and do their part.

Alberta's top doctor says that "getting vaccinated offers effective protection against COVID-19 and has us well-positioned for Stage 3." 

Yesterday's update saw 100 new cases identified provincewide --that's the lowest number of active cases Alberta has reported since September of 2020.

There are currently 214 Albertans in hospital, which is a decline of seven patients since Saturday and ICU admissions rose slightly on Sunday to 53.

Dr. Hinshaw also reported one more death on Sunday, raising the provincial total to 2,290.

"Sadly, I must also report 1 new death over the last 24 hours," says Dr. Hinshaw. "My deepest condolences to all of those mourning a lost loved one today."

Yesterday Premier Kenney tweeted that since expanding the second dose eligibility on Friday, over 250,000 Albertans have now booked their final vaccination shots.

Cochrane is currently sitting at 12 active cases of COVID-19, and Rocky View County is reporting 16 active cases.
