Variant cases

Alberta is screening all positive cases for variant strains of COVID-19.

  • New variant cases identified: 495 on October 14
  • Active variant cases: 5,809

Case numbers are updated Monday to Friday, except holidays. View more variant stats on the interactive data app. NOTE: Screening in May focused on a sample of positive cases so active variant cases should not be considered representative of total COVID-19 cases at this time.

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

R values from September 27 to October 3 (confidence interval)

  • Alberta provincewide: 0.92 (0.90-0.94)
  • Edmonton Zone: 0.86 (0.83-0.90)
  • Calgary Zone: 0.93 (0.90-0.97)
  • Rest of Alberta: 0.94 (0.92-0.97)

COVID-19 R values are updated every 2 weeks.

Outbreaks in Alberta

  • 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 and child care settings are listed when there are 5 or more cases.
  • All other non-healthcare workplaces, events, public settings (restaurants, salons and gyms) and sports activities 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.
  • This list is for general information purposes and should not be used to guide public health decision-making.

Outbreak locations by zone

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