One Edmonton region, Mill Woods West, and Calgary Centre, have been placed under watch classifications. There are six cases that remain active in the rural hamlets.

The limit has now been increased from 100 to 200 people, meaning events like community festivals, fireworks displays, rodeos, outdoor concerts and sporting events can go ahead.

"All public health measures, including physical distancing, remain in place".

For any seated outdoor event, the necessary space between families and cohort groups is still required to limit the spread of COVID-19 if someone were to have it.

And while large gatherings increase the risk of catching or transmitting COVID-19, the Province of Alberta also noted that outdoor events have a lower risk than indoor ones - so long as public health measures are followed.

Across Alberta, there were 41 new cases and no deaths from COVID-19 to bring the total to 8108.

This change comes in the wake of the one day increase in new COVID-19 cases.

Case numbers in the province have been inching up in recent days.

The new cases dropped from Saturday, when 69 new cases were reported - the highest since mid-May and almost twice the daily case count through the month of June, provincial data shows.

As of Tuesday, there were 559 active cases in the province, with 41 people in hospital, including nine in intensive care.

80 years or older, 108 deaths.

50-59 years, two deaths. The Edmonton Zone has continued a streak with a higher active case count than the Calgary Zone, which has 216 active cases, and 4,971 recoveries.
