The province made some interesting changes and additions of the provincial COVID-19 stats website.

Red Deer is no longer separated into 3 quadrants.  But the report now indicates how many cases are active and how many are recovered.

Across Central Alberta there are 72 cases.  39 of those people have already recovered.

  • Red Deer City – 32 cases – 16 active – 16 recovered
  • Red Deer County – 12 cases – 8 active – 4 recovered
  • Wetaskiwin City – 7 cases – 3 active – 4 recovered
  • Mountain View County – 5 cases – 2 active – 3 recovered
  • Lacombe County – 4 cases – 1 active – 3 recovered
  • Lacombe City – 2 cases – 0 active – 2 recovered
  • Camrose City – 2 cases – 0 active – 1 recovered – 1 death
  • Beaver County – 2 cases – 1 active – 1 recovered
  • Camrose County – 1 case – 1 recovered
  • Windburn County – 1 case – 1 recovered
  • Vermilion River County – 1 case – 1 recovered
  • Ponoka County – 1 case – 1 recovered
  • Stettler County – 1 case – 1 active
  • Kneehill County – 1 case – 1 recovered
  • Clearwater County – 1 case – 1 active

The province has created some graphs to help us understand where most of the cases originated.  It seems international travel (or being exposed to someone who has travelled) has been by far the greatest cause of exposure.

Here is a breakdown of the ages and genders of the Albertans who have been stricken with COVID-19

Here are the total numbers for the province.

Trevor’s Story: I Have Anxiety and Depression. Where Can I Get Help?

Published on

Trevor has suffered from anxiety and depression for a while. He had no idea where or how to get help with this. In discussing this with his doctor, he was referred to a Mental Health Counselor at Red Deer Primary Care Network.

Trevor says, “I, the skeptic, didn’t expect that I would get much help but did decide to work with the counselor. I needed to do something. We had 6 sessions together. The counselor provided me with insight on things that should have been so obvious to me but they weren’t. You don’t know what you don’t know. The counselor provided me with very practical and valuable tools. I came away with a different, more positive way to think about things. And it was just great to have a non-judgmental person to listen to me. It is a relief to just be able to tell someone who was really listening about my struggles.

These sessions were so valuable. I am in a much better state than I was. My struggles are not over but I manage to get through each day using the tools and improved mindset that I learned.

If anyone else is struggling like me I recommend no matter if they think it won’t help  just go, go in with an open mind. Even if you just feel you need someone to talk to you will get valuable tools to help manage your situation.”
