Four New COVID-19 Cases in Wood Buffalo, Additional Recovery in Fort McMurray

Four more people in Wood Buffalo have contracted COVID-19.

Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, announced on Wednesday 48 new cases across the province – raising the total to 7,530.

Three of the new local cases are in the rural areas, putting the total of active cases at six.

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.

The other case is in Fort McMurray. The amount of active cases in the community remains at nine as one more individual has recovered.

Across the RMWB, 25 individuals – 22 in Fort McMurray and three in the rural areas, have recovered from the virus.
