Coronavirus: Alberta officials provide COVID-19 update | LIVE
CA, 11 Sep 2020
Alberta's chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw is expected to deliver an update on Thursday regarding the COVID-19 pandemic in the province.
During Wednesday's briefing, Hinshaw announced that an online map has been launched allowing parents and students to see which schools have had two or more COVID-19 cases and where there was a risk of transmission in that setting.
She added that the threshold for what schools will be included on the map was established to avoid bombarding parents with information that is not helpful to them, making it harder to identify where true coronavirus transmission risks are present.
Hinshaw also reported on Wednesday that the province had recorded one new death and 98 new COVID-19 cases over the past 24 hours, bringing the total number of active cases in the province to 1,585.
