Less than 1,000 active cases of COVID-19 now in Alberta

Thursday, 21 May 2020.

There are four new cases in the south zone – one each in Cardston County/Kainai and Lethbridge, and two in Medicine Hat.

With 5,710 people now recovered from the virus, the number of active cases of COVID-19 in the province is now at 926.
