There was a very brief cabinet shuffle Tuesday, September 21 afternoon.

Premier Jason Kenney announced Shandro's Health Minister portfolio swap with Labour Minister Jason Copping.

Rachel Notley says while news of Shandro’s resignation as health minister “Is welcome, it’s not a solution to the urgent challenges before us.”

The urgency is telling in yet another day of rising COVID-19 numbers. 

Another 1,519 new cases were reported in the past 24 hours. 

There are 42 more people in the hospital with COVID bringing the total to 996.

ICU units have another six patients bringing the total to 222. 

Sadly, another 29 deaths have been reported in the past 24 hours. 

There are now 20,917 active cases in the province. 

To date, 81.4 per cent of Albertans have received one shot and 72.8 per cent are fully immunized against COVID-19.

Cochrane is reporting 107 active COVID-19 cases and Rocky View County has 175 cases.
