EDMONTON –

Alberta did not report any COVID-19 updates on Remembrance Day, so it will report two days worth of data on Friday. 

According to the last update on Wednesday, the province’s COVID-19 hospitalizations were below 600 for the first time since early September. There were 582 people in hospital with the disease, including 123 patients in ICUs. 

There were a little more than 6,000 active cases and 81.5 per cent of eligible Albertans were fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
