Alberta uses modelling to anticipate the number of COVID-19 cases over the coming months. This helps us make decisions and prepare hospitals to care for critical and acute patients.

These decisions include the aggressive public health measures currently helping to limit the spread of the virus.

Modelling data is intended to demonstrate expected trends, and not intended to be a predictor of day-to-day increases in hospitalization rates.

The most probable scenario for Alberta suggests the virus will reach its peak mid-May. An estimated 820 people could require hospitalization during the peak period, with more than a quarter requiring critical care.

Information is accurate as of April 8, 2020. Modelling and scenarios will be updated as new data emerges.

 

All Albertans need to work together to help prevent the spread and overcome COVID-19.

Restrictions remain in place for all gatherings and close-contact businesses, dine-in restaurants and non-essential retail services.

No gathering of more than 15 people is allowed in one indoor or outdoor location.

People gathered in groups of fewer than 15 people must maintain a distance of 2 metres from one another. Gatherings must occur in a space that allows for mandated physical distancing (at least 2 metres between attendees).

 

Restrictions remain in place for all gatherings and close-contact businesses, dine-in restaurants and non-essential retail services.
