Alberta saw just 19 new coronavirus cases on Wednesday

Open this

Currently, there are 59 hospitalizations, with six cases in intensive care units.

The availability of hospital beds in the province has allowed for the reintroduction of several services and residents and staff in long-term care facilities will soon have access to voluntary COVID-19 testing.

More routine health procedures in Alberta are moving forward after Premier Jason Kenney announced Friday Calgary and Brooks were allowed to continue with reopening starting Monday.

According to Alberta Health Minister Tyler Shandro, the moves are possible because Alberta managed to flatten the curve of infections from the novel coronavirus.

The Alberta government reported 32 new cases of COVID-19 in the province, bringing the number of total cases to 6800.

Additionally, Shandro announced Friday that Alberta would further expand COVID-19 testing.

Missing Maddie Bell found safe
Authorities describe Bell as standing 5-foot, 6-inches tall and weighing 120 to 125 pounds with browns hair and brown eyes. Highland County Sheriff Donnie Barrera said Bell's case is an active investigation and detectives are now following leads.

The release also noted that there are 970 active cases remaining in the province, with a total of 5,637 of the 6,735 cases having recovered as of May 20.

At its worst, Alberta saw 336 confirmed cases of the virus on April 23, and has been seeing a steady decrease in new cases ever since.

A week after most of the province has started phase one of reopening, Dr. Deena Hinshaw said it's important that people don't "get lulled into a false sense of security to feel like COVID is over or that the pandemic is over".

A CBC News tally of deaths attributed to coronavirus based on provincial data, regional health information and CBC's journalism stood at 6,342. The tests will be administered to anyone who requests one even if they have no COVID-19 symptoms.

The province says Albertans who have returned to Canada from other countries must self-isolate.

The province also operates a confidential mental health support line at 1-877-303-2642 and addiction help line at 1-866-332-2322, available from 7 a.m.to 11 p.m., seven days a week.
