The latest:
As of 11:59 p.m. June 14, the Alberta government lifted the province’s remaining COVID-19 restrictions, ending mandatory masking on public transit, as well as mandatory isolation.
Though not required, isolation remains recommended for those who have COVID symptoms or a positive test result.

Hospital and intensive care unit admissions have been declining for weeks. New case counts and the seven-day PCR test-positivity rate have also been dropping. “We are past this wave and in a period of declining transmission,” Copping said during a COVID-19 update on June 9. “Barring the arrival of any new variant or subvariant that behaves differently, we expect to see low transmission rates through the summer, especially as more activities move outside.”
