On Thursday, April 29, there was an Alberta COVID-19 restrictions update that announced new measures that will be implemented in hot spot regions across the province effective April 30.

According to the Government of Alberta, these "targeted restrictions" will affect areas with 350 cases per 100,000 people, and currently have 250 active cases.

For the next two weeks, these restrictions will prohibit any and all indoor sports and fitness activities. In addition, starting Monday, May 3, all junior high and high school students will switch to online learning.

The Government also stated curfews will be enforced when case rates are too high — 1,000 cases per 100,000 people — and if a city or region requests it. If that happens details will be announced prior to its implementation.

In an emailed statement, the province says it granted "certain" peace officers across the province temporary authority to enforce public health orders, and failure to comply with the mandatory restrictions will lead to fines of $1,000 per ticketed offence and up to $100,000 through the courts.
