    Alberta Premier Jason Kenney says the province will soon start lifting some public health restrictions and most will be gone by early July.

    He says the “open for summer”’ plan is possible because Albertans have “crushed” a spike in COVID-19 cases and are getting vaccinated.

    The capacity for places of worship is to be increased to 15 per cent on Friday, and hair salons and restaurant patios can open on Tuesday.

    Kenney says movie theatres, libraries and gyms will be allowed to open and indoor dining restaurants will be able to offer indoor dining as of mid-June.

    The third phase would see most all public health orders lifted.

    The three-stage plan is tied to the percentage of residents 12 and older who have received a first shot of vaccine and to hospitalization numbers.

    The government brought in tougher health orders three weeks ago to clamp down a surge in cases that saw Alberta lead North America in daily infection rates.
