Province increases outdoor gathering limit to 200

The provincial government announced in a release on Tuesday, that the maximum number of people allowed to attend select outdoor gatherings has been increased from 100 to 200.

"The increase applies to attendees at community outdoor events such as festivals, fireworks displays, rodeos and sporting events, and outdoor performances", the province said in a relase.

For any seated outdoor event, the necessary space between families and cohort groups is still required to limit the spread of COVID-19 if someone were to have it.

"We are making this shift based on several factors, including an analysis of how the virus is spreading in Alberta and the reduced risk of gatherings held outdoors".

Other outdoor events and spectator events not previously listed, such as wedding ceremonies and outdoor theatres are still restricted to a maximum of 100 people.

The limit of 50 people for indoor social gatherings remains.

Alberta reported 39 new COVID-19 cases on Sunday but no new deaths.

As of Monday, there are 41 people in hospital due to COVID-19, including nine requiring intensive care. AHS recorded 7,354 recoveries, 4,981 in the Calgary zone.

Anyone who's visited the restaurants in the last two weeks is encouraged to get a COVID-19 test.
