EDMONTON – Alberta will soon move all students to online learning and close restaurant patios, hair salons and tattoo parlors to counter an alarming spike in COVID-19 cases.

Premier Jason Kenney says retail store capacity will not decrease to more than 10 percent of customer capacity.

Outdoor gatherings are limited to five instead of ten people.

Places of worship are limited to 15 people instead of 15 percent, and attendance at funerals is halved to 10 people.

Kenney made the announcement live on the government website and on his Facebook page.

He cannot allow the provincial health system to be overwhelmed.
