Many of Alberta’s businesses may have reopened, but COVID-19 still presents a very real risk.
The province has a total of 1,430 active coronavirus cases as of Monday, July 27, from a total of 10,390 cases that have been seen over the course of the pandemic.

The Province of Alberta’s website shows how those active cases break down by age and location as well as a demographic breakdown of all newly confirmed cases over the past week.
According to their statistics, most new cases were found in those aged 20 to 29, followed by those aged 30 to 39.
Here’s how the numbers break down:
- Under 1 year: 5
- 1-4 years: 21
- 5-9 years: 24
- 10-19 years: 109
- 20-29 years: 415
- 30-39 years: 241
- 40-49 years: 161
- 50-59 years: 155
- 60-69 years: 122
- 70-79 years: 78
- 80+ years: 99
The province’s graphs also show that the majority of current active cases came from unknown exposures, making it much more difficult to track who may have been infected by the positive case.
Most active and new cases were found in the Calgary region, which recently saw a mandatory face mask bylaw put into place for indoor public places and transit.
The bylaw comes into effect on August 1.
With active cases once again on the rise, Albertans — and especially those who fall into the hardest-hit demographics — are encouraged to maintain proper physical distancing, wear a mask when out in public, and practice safe hand hygiene.
