What you need to know today in Alberta
Alberta reported an estimated 1,200 new cases of COVID-19 on Dec. 24 and 900 on Dec. 25.
The 900 figure marks the first time the new case count was below 1,000 since Nov. 17. No new hospitalization, ICU or death numbers were released.
Alberta Premier Jason Kenney said on Tuesday there will be a one-time exemption to the province’s gathering restrictions, allowing people who live alone to visit another household once between Dec. 23 and Dec. 28.
A household must only host a maximum of two people who live alone, not including minors.
The province also relaxed another rule — massage therapy will now be allowed for those who have a prescription, with precautions in place.
Kenney asked those who are thinking of breaking the rules over the holidays to consider the possible impact on the lives of others.
“This is not a theory. This is not a model. This is not a political preference. It is a simple, hard, numerical reality of the pressure on the health-care system, which without these kinds of difficult restrictions and measures would, within a matter of weeks, undoubtedly overwhelm Alberta’s health-care system,” he said.
“So we ask for people’s understanding at this particular time of year as they gather in smaller household groups to please do everything you can to avoid turning Christmas into a superspreader event that could have [a] devastating impact on the lives and health of thousands of your fellow Albertans.”
The provincewide R-value, or number of people infected by each person with the virus, was 0.92.
Alberta’s steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 in schools are working, and case numbers suggest that when students do catch the virus, it’s usually outside their classrooms, says the province’s top public health doctor.
Case numbers in schools slowly increased throughout the fall, then began to rise more steeply in November, Dr. Deena Hinshaw, the province’s chief medical officer of health, said Wednesday at a news conference.
In late November, the province brought in new health measures that paused team sports and group performances and limited social gatherings. Junior and senior high students shifted to learning at home while elementary-age students remained at school in person.
Hinshaw said that in all three age groups, new case numbers roughly tripled from the beginning of November to the end of the month, then plateaued and have fallen over the past few weeks.
“This similar trend in all three age groups supports the other evidence we have seen suggesting that the school model in place is protective against in-school transmission,” she said. “Instead, it seems that it is mainly all the other in-person activities that children undertake that are exposing them to the virus and helping to spread COVID-19.
Health-care workers throughout the province began rolling up their sleeves Wednesday as Alberta Health Services began rollling out an additional 25,350 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine.
AHS says 14 dedicated COVID-19 centres have been set up to receive the vaccine, which will be given to all eligible respiratory therapists, ICU staff and doctors, and some continuing care health-care workers.
Those getting immunized at this early stage were chosen based on how much they interacted with active COVID-19 cases, their risk of transmission and their roles on the front lines of the pandemic response, the government says.
Calgary Stampede president Dana Peers says planning is underway for next year, with fingers crossed, to stage the celebration of cowboy life, which brings in a million visitors each year and gives the local economy a $282-million boost.
The signature Calgary event was cancelled in 2020 because of the global pandemic.
“Who would have thought it would be a pandemic that would really take us to a whole new level of challenge?” Peers said in an interview.
The Stampede started on an annual basis in 1923. It had been held every year since, including in 2013, when Calgary and other communities in southern Alberta were devastated by flooding.
Young Ahmadiyya Muslims in Calgary are busier than ever, helping people deal with the second wave of COVID as part of a national campaign running throughout the pandemic.
The Ahmadiyya Muslim Youth Association launched the Neighbourhood Helper campaign in response to growing numbers of COVID cases and is increasing efforts heading into the holiday season.
They are offering their services across the city, and in other parts of Canada, picking up groceries, filling prescriptions and offering moral support to people who are struggling and in isolation.
Founded in 1889, the Ahmadiyya Muslim community spans more than 200 countries with tens of millions of followers.
“The campaign started in April to help people and families who are self-isolating or dealing with COVID,” said Qamar Ahmad.
A southern Alberta hockey coach has been suspended and fined after speaking with the media about a COVID-19 outbreak on his team last month, CBC News has learned.
On Friday, the league issued a 15-game suspension and a $1,000 fine against Andrew Milne, the coach of the Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Canmore Eagles, according to an email to AJHL executives and its member teams.
The suspension and fine were confirmed by league commissioner Ryan Bartoshyk, who said Milne was disciplined for “bringing discredit to the league.”
Meanwhile, the league is preventing teams from speaking publicly or posting on social media ordering all media requests related to the pandemic or the league’s return to play plan to the AJHL Office.
Transport Canada has handed out dozens of tickets and warning letters to passengers who refuse to wear masks on flights. Most of those have involved Alberta.
A review of Transport Canada data by CBC News reveals that WestJet passengers have been the hardest hit — with 50 of the 72 incidents, or nearly 70 per cent, involving passengers on the Calgary-based airline.
WestJet passengers were also issued eight of the nine fines levied, with tickets ranging from $100 to as high as $2,000.
Those who receive warning letters could be handed a bigger fine if they violate the rules a second time. Transport Canada says the fine could be as high as $5,000.
Sweeping new restrictions intended to curb the surge of COVID-19 in the province took affect on Dec. 13. They will remain in place at least for four weeks — through Christmas and New Year’s. A full list of the tighter measures is available on the province’s website.
Single parents have always shouldered extra responsibilities, but the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated challenges for this growing segment of the Alberta population.
According to census data from Statistics Canada, Alberta is home to more than 186,000 lone-parent families.
Though some share custody or have the help of a live-in partner, others have navigated the pandemic almost entirely on their own, balancing work, school and child care.
The pandemic has increased the weight of those responsibilities, according to Layna Haley, who runs support groups for single mothers online through the St. Albert-based Kaleo Collective. Her organization has seen a surge in single mothers seeking supports, she said.
Seven parents in the COVID-19 hotspots of Edmonton and Calgary shared their struggles — and successes — with CBC just days before the province enacted new restrictions. You can read them here.
Parks Canada is asking hikers and skiers heading to the trails to plan ahead, as COVID-19 restrictions may force plans to shift, especially during the winter holidays.
Daniella Rubeling, visitor experience manager for the agency’s Banff field unit, says one of the most important things to prepare for is the weather.
“Winter weather conditions can change quickly. And as we can see today, you know, the weather conditions can be quite extreme sometimes. And so we want to make sure people are prepared with the right clothing, the right gear, checking the conditions before they go and making sure that they have some alternative plans in place,” she said on Tuesday.
“So should weather conditions change or parking lots be full … have some backup areas to visit.”
Some parts of the Rockies received between 20 and 70 centimetres of snow on Tuesday, causing road closures and putting many areas at high risk of avalanches.
Another concern, Rubeling said, is people who are new to winter outdoor recreation.
While there are some closures, there’s still plenty to do in the mountain town and park — like winter walks, cross-country skiing and fat-biking. There is also downhill skiing, but some hills like Lake Louise have moved toward a reservation system.
People can visit the Parks Canada website for details on what’s open, what’s closed, what parking lots are full and how to enjoy the park safely, Rubeling said.
When Alberta’s COVID-19 outreach program began to reach front doors this week, volunteers say they were met with delight and appreciation.
“It’s something you don’t expect to see at your door, someone handing out at least two packages of self-protective gear and saying ‘happy holidays,'” volunteer Hanan Noor said.
Volunteers have started distributing care kits this week directly to households in the neighbourhoods hit hardest by COVID-19 in Edmonton and Calgary. Noor participated in Edmonton on Tuesday and Wednesday, going door-to-door in the Mill Woods area.
Partners at the Edmonton Convention Centre (ECC) are celebrating Christmas this year despite the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, CBC News reported Tuesday.
The temporary shelter at the ECC opened in late October. The centre has access to showers, laundry, ceremonial support for Indigenous peoples, regular meals and sleeping spots, among other support services.
Although holiday celebrations will look a bit different this year, there will special meals and gifts to mark the occasion.
“[We’ll have] a Christmas lunch service as well as a traditional turkey meal for the evening and volunteers will be handing out gifts to each participant that is on site and so that’ll be a bag of essential items. Socks, mittens and additional things they might need, some baked goods donated by local bakeries,” said Scarlet Bjornson, marketing and communications coordinator at Bissell Centre.

What you need to know today in Canada:
Ontario health officials said on Saturday that two confirmed cases of the new coronavirus variant first detected in the United Kingdom have appeared in the province, marking the first confirmed instances in Canada.
Scientists say that there is currently no evidence that COVID-19 vaccines that are currently being deployed, including those approved in Canada, will not protect against this variant.
It’s believed that the new variant spreads more easily and faster than the original version of the virus, but isn’t believed to be more deadly.
As of 6:30 a.m. ET, Canada’s COVID-19 case count stood at 541,647, with 78,623 of those cases considered active. A CBC News tally of deaths stood at 14,801.
The federal government has launched an $850,000 digital-based ad campaign warning Canadians about the perils of travelling abroad during the pandemic, which could include grounded flights or lax health rules at their destination.
The ads follow a CBC News report in late September that some snowbirds were planning to fly south this winter, despite the government’s advisory to avoid non-essential travel abroad. Since that time, a number of snowbirds have already left Canada.
Ontario began its lockdown as the province reported a two-day total of 4,301 cases of COVID-19 on Saturday. Health Minister Christine Elliott reported 2,005 more cases on Sunday.
The lockdown will begin at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 26 and remain in place until at least Jan. 23, 2021 in the 27 public health units that comprise southern Ontario. In the seven public health units in Ontario’s north, where daily case numbers have been significantly lower, the lockdown is set to expire on Jan. 9, 2021.
Hard-hit Quebec, meanwhile, also went into a provincewide lockdown on Friday, with businesses deemed non-essential ordered to remain closed until at least Jan. 11. No new data was published on Friday or Saturday.
In Saskatchewan, new restrictions took effect last Thursday. Under new measures, which are in place until at least Jan. 15, residents can no longer have guests in their homes and outdoor socializing is capped at 10 people.
In British Columbia, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said that while case numbers seem to be levelling, they are still too high.
“We have to remember that people getting sick today were in contact with others days ago, and as much as two weeks ago.”
In Atlantic Canada, new measures meant to prevent any possible surge of COVID-19 over the holiday period have started across Nova Scotia, which announced two new cases on Monday. Newfoundland and Labrador reported no new cases and announced that the province’s active caseload has dipped to 28.
Self-assessment and supports:
With winter cold and influenza season approaching, Alberta Health Services will prioritize Albertans for testing who have symptoms, and those groups which are at higher risk of getting or spreading the virus.
General asymptomatic testing is currently unavailable for people with no known exposure to COVID-19.
Those who test positive will be asked to use the online COVID-19 contact tracing tool, so that their close contacts can be notified by text message.
The province says Albertans who have returned to Canada from other countries must self-isolate. Unless your situation is critical and requires a call to 911, Albertans are advised to call Health Link at 811 before visiting a physician, hospital or other health-care facility.
If you have symptoms, even mild, you are to self-isolate for at least 10 days from the onset of symptoms, until the symptoms have disappeared.
The province also operates a confidential mental health support line at 1-877-303-2642 and addiction help line at 1-866-332-2322, both available 24 hours a day.
Online resources are available for advice on handling stressful situations and ways to talk with children.
There is a 24-hour family violence information line at 310-1818 to get anonymous help in more than 170 languages, and Alberta’s One Line for Sexual Violence is available at 1-866-403-8000, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Saint John city council plans to have a ride-sharing regulation bylaw ready by the end of this year to implement next year. The province passed an amendment to the Motor Vehicle Act in December to allow ride-sharing companies to operate, but each municipality must have bylaws regulating the service before it can be offered. Ride-sharing apps like Uber and Lyft allow customers to hail rides using a mobile app, and the drivers are employed as independent contractors who use their own cars and get a cut of the total fare, plus tips. Coun. Greg Norton asked council to vote to “immediately” have a bylaw in place to pave the way for ride-sharing to come to Saint John. After 30 minutes of discussion, the motion passed but only after the word “immediately” was removed. Two councillors voted against the motion even with the amendment. Not about the big apps Norton said his motion “is not about Uber and Lyft.” “The chances of Uber and Lyft coming into the city of Saint John, I would say, are limited, if any at all,” he told council Monday night. “But what we do have is, when we create this type of bylaw is, we have the opportunity for home-grown types of ride-sharing industries and businesses to pop up.” Norton said this proposal isn’t to intentionally create competition for the taxi industry, but “competition is good.” A few councillors voiced their objections for exactly this reason. Deputy Mayor Shirey McAlary said the timing is not right, considering the world is in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Our taxi drivers, our taxi owners in our city are having a desperate time,” she said. “I just feel to put more competition on our local taxi businesses is not something that I really think we should do at this time.” Coun. Blake Armstrong, who owns several bars in the city’s uptown, was also opposed. “People have no idea how decimated the industry has been in Saint John, including bars and restaurants,” he said. Norton said people he spoke to from the restaurant sector are onside. Coun. David Hickey suggested the removal of the word immediate, because he said sooner or later ride-sharing would be beneficial for the city. Timing matters City manager John Collin told council that staff have not looked at ride-sharing in detail. He said public consultation and a review of the impact on the city’s businesses will be done before any bylaw is passed. “From a staff point of view, I don’t believe that there’s any resistance to the notion of exploring ride-share and trying to put it into our community,” Collin said. “It is a best practice within communities,” he said. “This is something where we should do public consultation, and this is something that has significant liabilities, and therefore we simply cannot copy and paste someone else’s bylaw.” He said the bylaw could be passed by early 2022.

Aircraft Floor Panel Market in Europe to 2027 – by Aircraft Type, Material Type, Sales Channel, and End-user
Dublin, Jan. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Europe Aircraft Floor Panel Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis by Aircraft Type, Material Type, Sales Channel, and End User” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering. The Europe aircraft floor panel market is expected to grow from US$ 186.63 million in 2019 to US$ 325.57 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 9.7% from 2020 to 2027. Highlighting aircraft orders and delivery volumes are expected to boost the growth of the Europe aircraft floor panel market. The Europe aviation industry is undergoing expansion at a rapid pace, recording significant production volumes and deliveries of aircraft (commercial and military) fleet. Specifically, the commercial aviation industry has witnessed tremendous growth in the past few years with the emergence of new low cost carriers and fleet expansion strategies adopted by the full service carriers. Further, commercial aviation is foreseen to surge in the coming years owing to the mounting number of air travel passengers and aircraft procurement. This surge in aircraft production is boosting the demand for aircraft floor panels across Europe. Owing to continuously rising production volumes to bridge the gap between demand and supply of aircraft, the OEMs are increasingly procuring large volumes of aircraft floor panels. In the current scenario, the demand for both wide body and narrow body aircraft fleet is high. However, the inclination toward long-range, narrow body type is increasing as the majority of commercial aviation companies across Europe are focusing on increasing fleet size along with lowering operational costs. Rise in aircraft production due to surge in number of passengers is expected to increase the demand for floor panels, thereby driving the Europe aircraft floor panel market.Europe, especially the UK, is highly affected due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The European aviation industry is composed of aircraft OEMs, component suppliers, airlines, and MRO service providers. The COVID-19 outbreak has affected each aviation business stakeholder’s business in the region. Several airlines in the region have postponed the pending aircraft fleet’s procurement dates to manage their current operational costs during COVID-19 times and post-COVID-19 times. This has led the aircraft OEMs and component suppliers to suffer economic loss. This factor has had a negative result on the European aircraft floor panel market players. From the commercial aviation perspective and MRO perspective, several airlines have grounded a notable number of fleets with an aim to drive their business with the remaining fleet as the passenger count has drastically reduced across the region. Apart from this factor, the ban on air travel had forced the airlines and corporate jets to temporarily cease their operations, thereby lowering the MRO shop visits, resulting in the procurement of lesser volumes of aircraft floor panels and other components MRO facilities. This parameter also affected the aircraft floor panels market.Based on material type, the nomex honeycomb segment led the Europe aircraft floor panel market in 2019. Presently, nomex honeycomb floor materials is one of the most common materials used in aircraft structures with good electrical insulating properties. It possesses outstanding high impact strength and performs excellently on the food cart roller test in the aircraft. Rise in demand for light-weight, tough, and corrosion and heat resistant products boosts the use of reliable components made from nomex honeycomb in aerospace & defense applications. The properties of this material result in low maintenance costs and emissions as compared to other traditional materials that are used for manufacturing aircraft. The Gill Corporation provides robust, corrosion resistant, and light-weight Gillcore HK, Gillcore HA, and Gillcore HD Nomex honeycomb products. Their products are used for floor panels for the under-seat areas of the passenger compartment in Airbus aircraft, such as A318, A319, A320, A321, A330, and A340. Benefits of nomex honeycomb, such as light-weight, toughness, and corrosion resistance, are likely to boost the demand for nomex honeycomb material during the forecast period, thereby driving the Europe aircraft floor panel market.Reasons to Buy Save and reduce time carrying out entry-level research by identifying the growth, size, leading players and segments in the Europe aircraft floor panel market.Highlights key business priorities in order to assist companies to realign their business strategiesThe key findings and recommendations highlight crucial progressive industry trends in the Europe aircraft floor panel market, thereby allowing players across the value chain to develop effective long-term strategiesDevelop/modify business expansion plans by using substantial growth offering developed and emerging marketsScrutinize in-depth Europe market trends and outlook coupled with the factors driving the aircraft floor panel market, as well as those hindering itEnhance the decision-making process by understanding the strategies that underpin commercial interest with respect to client products, segmentation, pricing and distribution Key Topics Covered: 1.

'Our contract is not a contractual commitment': Tensions rise as AstraZeneca, EU talk COVID-19 vaccine delivery – CTV News
The European Union’s dispute with AstraZeneca intensified Wednesday with the Anglo-Swedish drugmaker denying the EU’s assertion that it had pulled out of talks on vaccine supplies.
AstraZeneca said in a statement that it still planned to meet with EU officials in Brussels later in the day. The comments came after EU officials said the company had informed the bloc that it wouldn’t take part in a meeting to discuss delayed vaccine commitments — the third such talks in as many days.
“The representative of AstraZeneca had announced this morning, had informed us this morning, that their participation is not confirmed, is not happening,” said Dana Spinant, the EU Commission’s spokeswoman.
The spat between AstraZeneca and the EU has raised concerns about vaccine nationalism, as countries desperate to end the pandemic and return to normalcy jockey for limited supplies of the precious vaccine shots.
The latest disagreement between the two sides came after AstraZeneca rejected the EU’s accusation that the company had failed to honour its commitments to deliver coronavirus vaccines. AstraZeneca said the figures in its contract with the EU were targets that couldn’t be met because of problems in rapidly expanding production capacity.
Chief Executive Pascal Soriot made the comments in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica following days of criticism from EU leaders furious about the news that initial shipments from AstraZeneca would be lower than anticipated.
The Anglo-Swedish drugmaker said last week that it planned to cut initial deliveries in the EU to 31 million doses from 80 million due to reduced yield in the manufacturing process.
“Our contract is not a contractual commitment,” Soriot said. “It’s a best effort. Basically we said we’re going to try our best, but we can’t guarantee we’re going to succeed. In fact, getting there, we are a little bit delayed.”
AstraZeneca said in a statement that it understands and shares “in the frustration that initial supply volumes of our vaccine delivered to the European Union will be lower than forecast.”
On Monday, the EU threatened to impose tight export controls within days on COVID-19 vaccines made in the bloc.
The EU, which has 450 million citizens and the economic and political clout of the world’s biggest trading bloc, is lagging badly behind countries like Israel and Britain in rolling out coronavirus vaccine shots for its health care workers and most vulnerable people. That’s despite having over 400,000 confirmed virus deaths since the pandemic began.
The shortfall of planned deliveries of the AstraZeneca vaccine is coming at the same time as a slowdown in the distribution of Pfizer-BioNTech shots as that company upgrades production facilities at a plant in Belgium.
