    Alberta premier Jason Kenney joined chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw for an update on COVID-19 in the province on Thursday.

    Kenney announced Alberta students who have chosen to learn in-person will head back to class next week, as originally planned. All other current COVID-19 public health measures will remain in place until at least Jan. 21, the premier added.

    Kenney said businesses will be given at least one week’s notice should changes be made to the current public health restrictions.

    Restrictions put in place on Dec. 13 include a ban on in-person dining and limit grocery and retail stores to 15 per cent of their fire capacity. These restrictions forced the closure of personal services like gyms and hair salons.

    Other measures, which ban both indoor and outdoor gatherings and mandate masks province-wide, were implemented on Dec. 8.

    Kenney spent most of the update defending his response to government staff and MLA’s who travelled abroad over the holidays.
