Edmonton – The latest public health restrictions in Alberta to prevent Govt-19 cases were announced by Prime Minister Jason Kenny in a live televised speech on Tuesday.
The Cabinet Committee on Emergency Management met earlier on Tuesday to approve new measures to help protect the health system in the province.
Each of the actions reported applies to Albertans, businesses and municipalities in more than 50 cases per 100,000 people and in 30 or more active cases.
These measures include converting all kindergartens to online learning at home for grade 12 classes from Friday to May 25 at least. All post-secondary companies will be limited to online distribution.
Workplaces with COVID-19 eruptions will be forced to close for 10 days and critical workplaces will be exempted.
Retailers will reduce their firefighting index by 10 percent or at least five customers with immediate effect.
From 11:59 pm on Sunday, May 9, the audio dining with barbershops, tattoo parlors, hair and nail salons will be closed.
Restaurants will be restricted to pick-up and drop-off only under the new regulations.
Outdoor community meetings, which are currently limited to 10 people, will be limited to 5, with Kenny saying that such meetings should not be limited to two family partners.
Places of worship will be limited to 15 people as it was last spring during the first wave of epidemics.
The final visit was limited to 10 people instead of the current 20 people allowed.
“Governments should not infringe on the rights and livelihoods of the people unless absolutely necessary to save lives,” Kenny said. “Unfortunately that is the situation we face today.”
“We will not allow our health system to be overcrowded,” he said.
Alberta has reported a high number of individual COVID-19 cases across Canada and the United States.
According to Health Canada, Alberta is at the forefront of individual COVID-19 infections. As of Monday, there were 308 cases per 100,000 population in the province, 170 in Ontario, 163 in Nunavut and 138 in Saskatchewan.
“I know it’s inspiring to hear all of this,” Kenny said. “No one wants to be here, especially after 14 months with so many waves of this epidemic.”
“But our commitment to Albertance’s health and safety must come first.”
Development of measures to increase
Kenny said the implementation of the public health measure will increase. The fine for violating public health measures is doubled to $ 1,000 to $ 2,000.
Maximum fine for serious offenses, 000 100,000.
The prime minister added that there would be “strict enforcement” protocols for offenders again, but did not provide further details.
“We will not tolerate those who endanger the health of fellow Alberts,” he said.
Kenny and Dr. Deena Hinshaw will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday to answer questions from the media and to review the new COVID-19 regulations that have been implemented.
The Prime Minister and Chief Medical Officer of Health will be joined by Health Minister Tyler Shantro, Education Minister Adriana Lockrange and Justice Minister Keizi Madhu.
