Calgary officials to update city’s coronavirus response

The City of Calgary is set to give an update on its coronavirus response plan on Monday after a weekend of more cases being confirmed across the province.

Alberta had 661 cases of COVID-19 as of Sunday, March 29, a large majority of which were in the Calgary Zone: 408.

The province is also seeing a growing number of cases spreading within the community, leading provincial officials to introduce new, stronger measures to limit that spread, like the closure of all non-essential services.

Last week, the city also introduced more restrictions, closing outdoor sport facilities and personal care businesses.
