87 Albertans are in hospital with COVID-19, including 16 in intensive care.
Dr Deena Hinshaw, chief medical officer of health, encouraged Albertans to show off their handmade or unique non-medical masks on social media.
When you wear a mask you show you care. This is my favourite mask, and when I wear it I know I’m helping to protect my community from #COVID19AB. I encourage you to share your fun masks at #AlbertaCares and tell us who you’re protecting. pic.twitter.com/4Qhy1K25wE

Hinshaw strongly encourages Albertans to wear facemasks when physical distancing in certain places is not possible.
While there is no mandatory order across Alberta, various municipalities and cities like Edmonton enacted bylaws for citizens to wear them inside public buildings.
To date, Alberta Health officials completed 668,226 tests for COVID-19.
Hinshaw will give a live report on COVID-19 response in Alberta on July 30, 2020.
