Alberta to lift remaining COVID-19 restrictions

Jun 14, 2022

The latest:
The last remaining COVID-19 public health restrictions in Alberta are coming to end, Health Minister Jason Copping said in a statement on June 13.
As of 11:59 p.m. June 14, the Alberta government will lift the province’s remaining COVID-19 restrictions, meaning mandatory masking on public transit will come to an end, as will mandatory isolation.
Though not required, isolation will remain recommended for those who have COVID symptoms or a positive test result.
Saskatchewan and Manitoba have already lifted self-isolation requirements.
Public health indicators suggest Alberta has passed the sixth wave of COVID-19, spurred mainly by the Omicron BA.2 subvariant, Health Minister Jason Copping said on June 9.
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.”
