COVID-19 R values

The R value, also known as the reproduction number, describes whether cases are currently increasing, decreasing or staying the same. It tells us average number of people that someone with COVID-19 will infect.

For example, if the R value is:

  • at 1, then an infected person will infect one other person, on average
  • below 1, it means the rate of transmission was decreasing during that period
  • above 1, the transmission rate was increasing

COVID-19 R values will be updated weekly.

R values from January 11 to January 17 (confidence interval)

  • Alberta provincewide: 0.84 (0.81-0.86)
  • Edmonton Zone: 0.81 (0.77-0.85)
  • Calgary Zone: 0.82 (0.79-0.85)
  • Rest of Alberta: 0.88 (0.84-0.92)

Outbreaks in Alberta

Locations of outbreaks in acute care and continuing care facilities (including group homes) are reported publicly when there are 2 or more cases, indicating that a transmission within the facility has occurred.

Prisons, correctional facilities, shelters, child care settings, work camps, food processing/manufacturing facilities and public settings (restaurants, salons, gyms) are listed when there are 5 or more cases.

Events, sports activities and other workplaces (like office buildings) are listed when there are 10 or more cases.

Outbreaks are declared over when 4 weeks have passed since the last case was identified, so not all outbreaks listed below have current transmission happening.

As a precaution, outbreak control measures are put in place at continuing care facilities and group homes with a single confirmed case.

Outbreak locations by zone

Outbreak information will be updated on Tuesdays and Fridays each week. Case numbers for outbreaks at specific sites are not provided online because they change rapidly and often.

Cases in K-12 schools

Public health measures are in place to ensure a safer reopening of schools. This includes mandatory masking, physical distancing, enhanced cleaning, and daily symptom screening. If a case is confirmed, contact tracers and public health officials will be deployed to identify potential exposure and limit spread.

Parents will be notified by their child’s school as soon as one confirmed case is identified within the school. This in known as an alert.

An outbreak is declared when there are 2 or more confirmed cases in a school setting within a 14 day period where disease could have been acquired or transmitted in the school.

See K-12 school status map

Modelling

In April 2020, Alberta used modelling to anticipate the number of COVID-19 cases over the coming months. This helped us make decisions and prepare hospitals to care for critical and acute patients.

These decisions included the aggressive public health measures we put in place this spring to help limit the spread of the virus.

The updated probable scenario estimated that 596 people would require hospitalization when the virus reached its peak. This was a reduction from the previous planning scenario.

We also created a revised low scenario, which took into account Alberta’s overall low hospitalization rate and suggested that 298 people would require hospitalization at the virus’s peak.

Neither scenario became a reality in Alberta, and the province’s hospitalization rate continues to be much lower than the estimate in the low scenario.

Planning scenarios

Modelling data is intended to demonstrate expected trends and not intended to be a predictor of day-to-day increases in hospitalization rates. Alberta now has months of data and experience to inform our ongoing response to COVID-19, and no updated models are being planned at this time.
