Five people died Monday from COVID-19, bringing the total in the province to eight so far. The woman in her 70s was a resident at the McKenzie Towne Continuing Care Centre in southeast Cgy, where 36 residents and five staff are probable or confirmed cases. There were also two new cases reported at Shepherd's Care Kensington Village in Edmonton. Last week, Alberta switched its testing priorities from people returning from travels outside Canada to people in high-risk populations, such as seniors and health-care workers. The rules apply to quarantined people who are feeling well and those who have symptoms of COVID-19.
