Alberta officials to update provincial response to COVID-19 Monday afternoon

Alberta Premier Jason Kenney and chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw will address the media Monday afternoon with an update on the province’s response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

A news release from the government said the premier is scheduled to speak at 2 p.m., while Hinshaw is expected to speak at 3:30. Both news conferences will be livestreamed in this post.

The release didn’t specify what Kenney would be speaking about, but in her update on Saturday, deputy chief medical officer Dr. Marcia Johnson said the province has received reports of people not staying in or practicing social distancing.

“A plan is in place and will be starting to roll out over the next week that will allow public health inspectors to monitor large groups and restaurants and businesses,” she said.
