  COVID-19 Update: Alberta to lower eligibility age for AstraZeneca | Many students shift online today | Cancer patients call for second dose With news on COVID-19 happening rapidly, we’ve created this page to bring you our latest stories and information on the outbreak in and around Calgary.

Following Ontario’s lead, Alberta will also expand use of the AstraZeneca vaccine to people aged 40 and over. Ontario will expand use of the AstraZeneca vaccine to people 40 and older, starting Tuesday. Calgary daycares and preschools are seeing more COVID-19 outbreaks. Alberta reported 1,516 new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, as well as three additional deaths.

Players removed today: None

The NHL will take days like this, with no one added and no one removed. Henrique hasn’t been joined by any other Ducks, while Leivo remains the only Flames player several days after his original addition.

As Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet writes, teams around the league were told that there will be serious consequences for any postseason COVID outbreaks that result from not following protocols. That could even include the forfeiture of a series, something that would be a disaster for everyone involved. Hopefully, nothing like that occurs as we move into the Stanley Cup playoffs in the coming weeks.
