Two More COVID-19 Cases in Fort McMurray, Additional One in Rural Areas

Wood Buffalo is seeing three more cases of COVID-19.

The province announced on Tuesday 35 new cases across Alberta – raising the total to 7,482.

The new cases in Fort McMurray raises the active total to nine, while there are now three active cases in the rural areas across the region.

The case rate in the rural areas is the second highest across the province, mainly due to the smaller population, however, it’s not on Alberta’s ‘watch list’ as it doesn’t have 10 active cases.

Across the RMWB, 24 individuals – 21 in Fort McMurray and three in the rural areas, have recovered from the virus.

They are among the 6,882 who’ve recovered across the province. This represents just under 92 per cent of cases.

Meanwhile, there are no new deaths from COVID-19 in the province over the past 24-hours – keeping the death toll at 151.

None of the deaths have been in the RMWB.
