Alberta's government will announce new measures today to curb the explosive fourth wave of COVID-19.
Multiple government and industry officials confirmed to CBC News that the province will implement a liquor sales curfew, recommend that unvaccinated people limit their social contacts, and delay a return to the office for public servants.
Cabinet is also leaning towards the return of a provincial mask mandate and a potential monetary incentive to encourage more people to get vaccinated, the sources said. Steps that reflect those options could be announced today
CBC News is not naming the officials because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter.
Premier Jason Kenney, Health Minister Tyler Shandro and Alberta's chief medical officer will be holding a news conference at 11:30 Friday.
