"We want to stop as a province going back and forth with tightening and then loosening the rules, and I'm sure that Albertans are exhausted of going back and forth themselves".

On Thursday the province announced the three categories it has been using to describe COVID-19 levels in schools - alert, outbreak or watch - will be simplified down into two categories. Don't bend the rules to fit you. "But, we need to be careful that we don't reduce too early and risk the steady improvements we've made since November. We must remain diligent in our efforts to bring our numbers down even further", Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Deena Hinshaw said.

Multiple salons recently gained public attention for reopening despite health orders to close.

"Our trend in December was escalating quickly, and our trend today is coming down in a reassuring way", Hinshaw said.

"So again, the point being that the opportunity that we have today to begin starting to lift some of the limits is entirely dependent on all of us continuing to follow the measures in place in every setting".
