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.

Modelling

Alberta uses modelling to anticipate the number of COVID-19 cases over the coming months. This helps us make decisions and prepare hospitals to care for critical and acute patients.

These decisions include the aggressive public health measures currently helping to limit the spread of the virus.

Modelling data is intended to demonstrate expected trends, and not intended to be a predictor of day-to-day increases in hospitalization rates.

The updated probable scenario now estimates 596 people will require hospitalization when the virus reaches its peak. This is a reduction from the previous planning scenario.

We have also created a new low scenario. This new projection takes into account Alberta’s overall low hospitalization rate. If trends continue as they are, this new low scenario could become the most likely for Alberta. This likely new scenario suggests 298 people will require hospitalization when the virus reaches its peak.

Planning scenarios

Modelling and scenarios will be updated as new data emerges.

Sweden comparison

We have compared Alberta's current rates of cases and severe outcomes with those of Sweden, a country that has established minimal stay-at-home physical distancing orders.

Outbreaks in Alberta

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

Outbreaks at other facilities or in the community are reported publicly when there are 5 or more cases.

Outbreaks are declared over when 4 weeks have passed with no new cases, 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.
