Alberta's Relaunch Strategy
Thanks to Albertans, the health care system continues to be able to cope with COVID-19.
The plan to move forward requires careful monitoring and  respecting all guidelines  outlined by the chief medical officer of health.
Each stage of relaunch will depend on our ability to keep infection numbers low. Health measures we are watching include hospitalizations and Intensive Care Unit (ICU) occupancy.
Confirmed cases will be monitored in real time to inform proactive responses in localized areas of the province.
