"[Serology testing] detects the antibodies in a person's blood, which can show us if they have been exposed to COVID-19 in the past".

"Serology testing will help us find out and contribute to the global evidence, which will help all jurisdictions moving forward", said Shandro.

While 45 new cases of COVID-19 were identified in the last 24 hours, the number of active cases in Alberta remains at 532.

Deena Hinshaw, said 62 per cent of those they've spoken with so far think the need for human connection is great enough that guidelines need to be reconsidered.

Alberta Precision Laboratories will also offer serology testing for specific clinical purposes and funded population-level serology research studies. Serology testing will not replace the current tests used to determine whether someone now has COVID-19, and does not indicate if someone is immune.

25 cases in Wood Buffalo recovered from COVID-19, including 22 in Fort McMurray.

Hinshaw said this lack of connection is having a negative impact on the health of residents in care homes. "Let's all continue to protect one another by acting responsibly and doing our best to follow the guidance every single day".

Thirty-six people are now in hospital because of COVID-19.

A total of 153 people have died in Alberta from COVID-19 including 14 in the Edmonton Zone.

Dr. Hinshaw added that, due to a transportation delay, 800 test samples were held up and they found six additional cases.

Six patients and two staff at the Misericordia Community Hospital have tested positive for COVID-19.

Confirmed cases in the Calgary zone continued to drop, while the Edmonton zone continues to see an increase in cases. Those people will be contacted by AHS.
