Bookings are being opened by birth year.

This will be Hinshaw's first appearance since last Thursday.

Additional years will be added as more doses arrive.

On Monday, the province had a positivity rate of 9.9 per cent with 9,102 tests completed.

As for vaccines, Alberta has distributed over 707,000 doses to date with 116,198 Albertans now fully vaccinated with two doses. The number of patients in intensive care units has grown more rapidly, up to 76 reported on Monday, almost double the 40 reported three weeks prior.

Premier Jason Kenney said last week the province was not considering further public health restrictions to curb the spread.

The Alberta government's Emergency Management Cabinet Committee is meeting Tuesday morning - a day earlier than was expected - though no details have been provided about what specifically is being discussed.

The first outbreak involves the north and central health zones and "a large employer with multiple sites across Western Canada", Hinshaw wrote on Twitter Monday.

Since the start of April, the province's active case count has grown by more than 1,700.

After a vague tweet from Dr. Deena Hinshaw over the weekend regarding an outbreak of new cases in the province, Alberta's top doctor has provided a little more information on the outbreak.

Hinshaw says so far three of those infections are confirmed to be the more unsafe Brazilian variant, but she adds that's likely to increase as more results come in.

Hinshaw on Saturday said there had been a "significant" Brazilian variant outbreak, but gave no further details until Monday.

A separate and unrelated P.1 outbreak was identified at a workplace in the Calgary zone, with five COVID-19 cases associated with it and one confirmed case of the P.1 variant.
