Dr Deena Hinshaw, chief medical officer of health, outlined changes for casinos, racing entertainment centres, and continuing care facilities.
Hinshaw discussing a new order signed today for continuing care facilities.
It allows operators more flexibility to adapt restrictions to balance need for residents who leave the site (focuses on isolation requirements, recreation and dining, based on risk of events)

The order does not come into effect for another two weeks to give staff time to make changes.
When asked about adults working from home, Hinshaw said both the employer and employee should decide together.
“It depends on the context of the job, whether the employer is able to keep employees continuing to work from home. That’s something that has to be worked out to be the right decision for the employer and the organization, as well as what’s right for the employee.”
To date, Alberta health officials conducted a total of 994,289 tests.
Hinshaw will provide a live update on COVID-19 response on Sept. 4, 2020.
