Morinville has 26 active cases with 332 people having recovered from the virus in total. As of Monday, 16,200 Albertans have been full vaccinated meaning they have received 2 doses of the vaccine. Stettler and County remain with six active cases.

Currently, 298 schools in the province, about 12 per cent, are on alert or have outbreaks, with 701 cases in total.

"We have reached a place where we should be able to further ease measures on February 8, but we have seen cases fall and rise before", Hinshaw said Monday afternoon. "We must all keep doing our part".

In addition the previous week's one B.1.1.7 (U.K.) case without a travel source, labs have confirmed three more cases between two households. Encouragingly, the average daily number of new cases in the school-age population continues to fall week over week.
