On July 3, there were four more cases COVID-19 cases in Big Lakes County, which includes High Prairie. These new cases mean there are five active cases in a municipality which borders the M.D. of Lesser Slave River.

Lesser Slave River, including Slave Lake, currently has no active cases. It remains at five cases – all recovered.

Today, there were seven new cases today in the Alberta Health Services North Zone. Also, three people recovered, so the number of active cases increase by four from 34 to 38. Since Stage 2 started on June 12, the number of active cases have risen, but were holding at between 32 and 36 cases for the last two weeks. (See July 8 Leader for graphs and more detail).

Some of the 38 active North Zone cases are in regions with only a few cases, but Fort McMurray and the neighbouring municipality of Wood Buffalo both have over 10 active cases. Fort McMurray has 17 and Wood Buffalo has 10.
