On Sunday, there were no additional deaths, but the province confirmed an additional 31 cases in the province. The Edmonton zone has now reached 238 active cases, three more than Calgary zone’s 235.

While active cases provincially now sit at 534, still much lower than their peak on April 30, when there were 2,992 active cases in the province, cases have continued to rise faster than recoveries this past week.
From last Monday to Sunday (June 13 to June 21), there have been 152 new recoveries in the province, but an additional 251 cases have been confirmed in Alberta over that same period.
Two additional Albertans have died from the disease over that same period, with a total of 152 people now having lost their lives due to COVID-19.
As of Sunday, there are 33 people in hospital, seven of whom are in intensive care.
The total number of Albertans in hospital has remained fairly stagnant over the last week: to compare, last Monday there were 31 people in hospital and seven in intensive care.
