We need more Albertans immunized to prevent such outcomes. We know vaccines can limit new cases, & help prevent severe outcomes, & hospitalizations over the long term. We must work together to reduce transmission to protect our health system & our communities. (3/6) https://t.co/trp8fAPEoq

Sadly, 18 new deaths related to COVID-19 were also reported to Alberta Health in the last 24 hours. My sympathies go to the families and friends of these individuals and to all who are grieving today. (4/6)

We are at another challenging time in this pandemic. As we respond to growing case numbers, I want to remind Albertans that it is critical that we focus on combatting the virus with the preventative measures that we know to be effective. (5/6)

Wear a mask when you’re in public, stay home if you are feeling unwell, get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, & get vaccinated. Following these basic steps now can save lives. For details on current public health measures in place, visit https://t.co/yWkcrIuJ6y (6/6)
