All 21 people known to have battled COVID-19 in the Cochrane-Springbank geographical area have recovered.

In today's update from Alberta Health officials, there was zero next to the map of the Cochrane-Springbank area. 

Reaching zero pays tribute to the due diligence of residents and officials in fighting the spread of the virus.

Rocky View County has only one remaining active cases of the 44 who tested positive.

It's quite a different story just down the road in Calgary, where there remain 223 active cases.

Health officials reported 40 new cases across the province. 

There are currently 336 active cases, less than five per cent of the 7,138 people who contracted the virus.
