Jan. 17 south-zone Covid update
Zone and provincial stats only released for Jan. 14 to 16
 
Covid-19 Update
By Shannon Robison


Please note date information in each section of statistics. Due to technical issues with the Government of Alberta Covid-19 dashboard, only zone and provincial data has been updated today.
 
R values provided today show a slow in Covid-19 transmission from Jan. 10 to 16, but numbers continue to reach unprecedented highs in Alberta.
 
Nearly 16,000 new cases of the virus were lab-confirmed over the weekend, bringing the number of known active Covid cases in the province to 72,368.
 
Hospitalizations increased by 185 over the same period, ICU admissions are up by 13, and 23 deaths were reported.
 
Zone and gender information are not attached to death statistics today as a balance between protecting the privacy of the family of a child in the five-to-nine-year age group and public disclosure.
 
Vaccination status information is included for Pincher Creek and Crowsnest Pass, and other south-zone communities will be added throughout the week as this is one component that changed considerably on the government website on Friday.
 
Anyone with Covid-19 symptoms — new onset of cough or worsening chronic cough, fever, new or worsening shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, runny, nose, sore throat, loss of sense of taste or smell — should use the online assessment tool before calling 811. It can be accessed at https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/topics/Page17260.aspx
 
If you have symptoms, you are legally required to isolate. If you are unvaccinated, the mandatory isolation time is 10 days or until symptoms have resolved, whichever is longer. If you are fully immunized, the mandatory isolation time is five days or until symptoms are fully resolved, whichever is longer.
 
Most recover without special treatment and can manage mild symptoms at home. An online self-care guide is available at https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/topics/Page17824.aspx.
 
See your family doctor if you have a fever higher than 39 degrees for three days, return of cough after being cough free, increasing shortness of breath or shortness of breath at rest, inability to lie down because of difficulty breathing, signs of dehydration (passing little urine or feeling lightheaded), or chronic conditions you are having difficulty managing because of Covid.
 
If you are symptomatic and test negative, continue to stay at home and away from other people until the symptoms get better.

Statistics in this post are current as of Jan. 14 to 16, 2022 and were updated Jan. 17, 2022
 
This Covid-19 update provides details for Pincher Creek, Crowsnest Pass and all communities in the south zone, and more general information for other zones and Alberta as a whole. It includes new cases and positivity rates, active cases, recoveries and recovery rates, hospitalizations and ICU admissions, deaths and mortality rates, R values, outbreaks, school information, immunization updates, Alberta Health video and more, compiled from Alberta Health and Alberta Health Services data.
 
Updates are provided every day that Alberta Health releases new data. The goal of our posts is to provide all of the detailed information in an easy-to-understand format and all in one place. Thank you for supporting our advertisers and for choosing Shootin' the Breeze as an information source.
 
The zone of current hospitalization and current ICU admission are based on a patient's location of hospitalization, not the zone of patient residence. For example, a Pincher Creek resident hospitalized in Calgary is categorized as an active case in the Pincher Creek region, and their hospitalization statistic will show in the Calgary zone.
 
Alberta Health shares information regarding deaths as soon as it is available. There can be delays in death reporting to Alberta Health or in post-mortem confirmation of a death having Covid-19 as a contributing cause. The number reported on any given day is typically a total from multiple days.
