"We have ... seen other jurisdictions, such as Singapore, be successful in preventing the spread of COVID-19 without having to close schools", Hinshaw said.

While all of Alberta's confirmed novel coronavirus cases are still travel-related, Hinshaw said public health investigators continue to probe the two unclassified cases identified between Friday and Saturday.

All five cases are in self-isolation at home and are expected to fully recover.

Kenney and chief medical health officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw both announced six new cases of COVID-19 in the province - one in the Edmonton area, and five in the Calgary zone - bringing the total to 29.

On top of the closures, the province announced an additional $500 million in funding for Alberta's public health officials to ensure they have the tools they need for testing and treatment of the virus.

The risk of contracting COVID-19 in Alberta is still low.

Alberta Health confirmed the news in a press release with details about Monday's COVID-19 update.
