A week-long trend of relatively low numbers of new COVID-19 cases came to an end on Friday.

After seeing a spike in mid-July, the number of new daily cases dropped below 100 again for about a week with only 56 cases confirmed Thursday.

Come Friday though, there were 134 new cases and three additional deaths for a total of 208 province-wide.

One of those deaths was reported here in the South Zone of Alberta Health Services though as of Friday the municipality hadn’t been identified.
