    Alberta enacted a second state of public health emergency on Tuesday, after 1,115 new COVID-19 cases were confirmed in the province over 24 hours. New targeted restrictions were also introduced and will remain in effect for three weeks, after which time they will be re-evaluated. Premier Jason Kenney said restrictions would be placed on social gatherings, worship services, businesses, schools and all Albertans, and that they were not determined lightly. “We believe these are the minimum restrictions needed right now to safeguard our health-care system, while avoiding widespread damage to peoples’ livelihood,” he said. As Heather Yourex-West reports, some medical officials fear its too little, too late.
