Rocky View County has jumped to 140 active cases an increase of 30 since Thursday, April 1.

On Tuesday, the province recorded 931 new cases of COVID-19, 676 of which are variants of concern.

There are now 328 people in the hospital, with 76 of them in intensive care, which Alberta Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw described as a sharp increase.

Monday afternoon, Hinshaw released more information, linking the outbreak to three work sites of a western Canadian company with cases in the central and north zone, in addition to a P1 variant case in the Calgary zone, leaving many questions unanswered.

Dr. Hinshaw also noted that a separate, unrelated P.1 outbreak has been reported at a workplace in the Calgary area.

Currently, 312 people are in hospital with 76 people now in the ICU.

Alberta Health also reported three deaths linked to COVID-19 on Monday, bringing the provincial death toll up to 2,001.

Premier Jason Kenney says Alberta is now seeing a third wave of COVID-19, driven mainly by the more contagious and unsafe variants.

After a vague tweet from Dr. Deena Hinshaw over the weekend regarding an outbreak of new cases in the province, Alberta's top doctor has provided a little more information on the outbreak.

A list of eligible health conditions can be found on the AHS website.

As of April 4, 116,198 Albertans have been fully immunized with two doses of the vaccine, and a total of 707,482 doses have been administered in the province.
