The Alberta government’s regional data on the spread of COVID-19 shows that Cold Lake, High Prairie, and Sturgeon County are the three regions in Alberta’s Health Services North zone that are affected by the virus.
There are four cases of COVID-19 in the North zone.
That’s up one from Wednesday – which was the first time a region outside of the Edmonton and Calgary zones had a confirmed case since the province’s first March 6.
Located on their Alberta government website, a map shows a breakdown of where the 119 cases of the virus are, which are dominated in the high-travel, high-traffic, Calgary (83) and Edmonton (27) zones.
In total, 22 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 were announced on Wednesday totalling 119 in the province.
Cases have been identified in all zones across the province:
- 83 cases in the Calgary zone
- 27 cases in the Edmonton zone
- Four cases in the North zone
- Three cases in the Central zone
- Two cases in the South zone
After passing the Budget 2020 in a shortened fight against the NDP, the United Conservative Party then broke down over $50 million in relief funding.
The province is updating these numbers daily while Dr. Deena Hinshaw addresses residents typically between 3:30-4:30p.m each day.
