I know that there will be folks out there who won’t like the idea of mandatory masks in public places.

An outbreak at Edmonton General Continuing Care Centre has become the second-deadliest in the province since the pandemic began, says Alberta Health.
Thirty-three patients have died and there have been 174 positive cases, Lynn Klein, corporate director at Covenant Health, told families of patients in a Friday Zoom call. Of these cases, 92 residents and 82 staff have tested positive to date.
Edmonton’s Good Samaritan Southgate Care Centre was the province’s deadliest with 34 deaths and 114 cases, Alberta Health spokeswoman Zoe Cooper said Friday. Alberta’s largest outbreak was at the Cargill plant near High River with 938 cases and two deaths.
Klein told families Friday they were having a “hopeful” week since there weren’t any new cases discovered since Monday. Thirty-three residents and 28 staff have recovered.
“We’re trying to be not overconfident, but we’re excited about that … this has been the fifth good day,” she said.
