Alberta is expanding the number of people who can meet up for audience-type outdoor events.
Dr. Deena Hinshaw, the province’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, says up to 200 people may now congregate for festivals, fireworks displays, rodeos and sporting events and other outdoor performances.
For more personalized outdoor social gatherings, such as weddings and funerals, the limit remains at 100 people.
For those holding social gatherings indoors, the maximum is 50 people.
There is no cap on the number of people for worship services, or in restaurants, cafés, casinos or bingo halls, as long as hygiene and physical distancing measures are in place.
Alberta says it continues to flatten the curve on COVID-19, with 559 active cases and 41 people in hospital.
There have been 154 deaths linked to the illness in the province.
