Acute care and continuing care facilities (including group homes) are reported publicly when there are 2 or more cases, indicating that a transmission within the facility has occurred. Outbreak control measures are put in place at continuing care facilities and group homes with a single confirmed case, as a precaution.
AHS Acute Care Outbreaks in Alberta provides more information on outbreaks in hospitals.
Prisons, correctional facilities, shelters and child care settings are listed when there are 5 or more cases.
All other non-healthcare workplaces, events, public settings (restaurants, salons and gyms) and sports activities are listed when there are 10 or more cases.
Outbreaks are declared over when 4 weeks have passed since the last case was identified, so not all outbreaks listed below have current transmission happening.
This list is for general information purposes and should not be used to guide public health decision-making.
