The COVID-19 status map shows the level of risk in regions and information about local health measures. It also shows the rate of COVID-19 cases and the number of active by cases.
Regions are defined by municipal boundaries. Each region is either:
a municipality of 10,000 or greater population: a city, town or municipal district (or county)
communities smaller than 10,000 are included in the surrounding municipal district. Communities include First Nations reserves, Metis Settlements and towns.
Regions are designated as open, watch or enhanced relaunch status. All regions must continue to follow Alberta’s public health measures and guidelines, regardless of relaunch status.
