Contact tracing is being done to also figure out if the virus was contracted or spread in schools.

Alberta Health Services says that a southeast Calgary elementary school and a northeast Calgary high school were confirmed as outbreaks yesterday.

Hinshaw says gathering more information about who is most at risk of contracting the novel coronavirus at school will help the government take a more targeted approach in the future.

For now, the exclusion guidelines are broad to minimize risk of transmission and to evaluate the public health definition of what constitutes a close contact, she said.

The goal is to keep transmission as low as possible but can't prevent it entirely without imposing restrictions that themselves have harmful impacts, Hinshaw added.

About 21 of those schools are in Calgary and at least six are in Edmonton.

"This depends on how dedicated we all are to following the measures in place and how we collectively respond when cases are rising", she said.

Alberta's top doctor reported 418 new cases of COVID-19 and one death on Monday. "The small actions and simple choices each of us makes every day will be crucial to limiting the spread in schools and across communities in the days and weeks ahead", she posted.

There have been 13 new actives cases found in Fort McMurray since September 11, bringing the known total to 51.

There are now active cases 1,538 in Alberta.

Alberta tested more than 46,000 people over the weekend, including almost 19,000 on Saturday.

Almost 19,000 tests were completed on Saturday, but Hinshaw said not to expect numbers that high on a daily basis.

There are 37 cases hospitalized, with seven people fighting the virus in intensive care units.

The most recent death involved a woman in her 70s from Edmonton zone who was not a resident in continuing care.

Hinshaw said 35 Alberta schools have reported COVID-19 cases, with a total of 42 cases.
