Active cases across Alberta are now back up to 1,430 after dropping slightly to 1,397 on Tuesday. Of those active cases, 87 people are in hospital and 17 people are being treated in intensive care.
The three new deaths that have been reported include three women, two in their 70s and one in her 90s, all in the Edmonton zone. The deaths have been linked to the outbreak at the Good Samaritan Southgate Care Centre.
