"But we have control over what that wave looks like ... there continues to be COVID-19 transmission in many parts of our province, and we know that this is expected".

Henry said a second outbreak at the Royal Arch Masonic Home was also reported.

According to Alberta Health spokesman Tom McMillan, the province still advises everyone to wear masks when physical distancing isn't possible.

"If you are planning on voting in person, keep in mind to give others the space to stay safe when going to vote, wash your hands before and after voting, and consider using a mask if distancing is a challenge", said Henry.

Henry is also encouraging parents to keep Halloween plans small this year.

Instead of shared candy bowls and homemade treats, she suggests having a candy slide or hanging individual candy packages in a way that children can grab them themselves.

"That can't happen this year".
