“I was thinking today how there was snow on the ground on March 5th, that long-ago day when we identified Alberta’s first case of COVID-19,” said Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta’s chief medical officer of health. “Now, summer is officially here.”

“I know, especially after weeks of staying in, that many people are excited to get out and enjoy the – too few – warm and sunny days. My family and I are, too. We’ve come a long way in keeping our case numbers and hospitalization rates low.”
