After weeks of lower case numbers, Covid-19 seems to be on the upswing in Central Alberta Zone.  In the last week 95 new cases were reported in the entire region.  37 of those cases are in the Maskwacis area.

While Edmonton continues to lead the province with over 1,000 active cases, Central region has a total of 109.


The numbers in Red Deer are up as well.  After many days in the single digits, there are now 22 active COVID-19 cases in the city.

The following information is the latest from the province regarding specific municipalities in Central Alberta.  These numbers aren’t updated as quickly as the total numbers so there are still a few cases here which are actually now recovered.  This list shows 9 cases which are now recovered.Central Alberta Communities – Active Cases

COVID cases falling! Below 200 in Red Deer and under 1200 in all of Central Alberta – Mike York Update

Published on

Thursday January 14th, 2021 Covid-19 update from AHS goes like this.
In the Central Zone, 64 new cases and 186 new recoveries.
The total active cases has dropped dramatically since yesterday from 1275 to 1152 in our region.
There are now 75 people in hospitals which is 5 fewer than yesterday’s total. 15 of these people are in ICU. Sad to report 1 additional death in the zone since yesterday to bring that total to 65 to date.
Red Deer had some positive numbers also.
Just 13 new positive cases and 33 recoveries. Thus our active cases has decreased by 20 to just 196 at this time.
Very promising outlook going forward, it seems our current health measures are working, way to go people.
Cheers for now.
