The South Zone recorded four more cases since Sunday, all in Cypress County.
There are now 53 hospitalizations across the province, of these six cases are in intensive care units.
The county has 18 total cases, seven active and 11 recovered. Dr. Deena Hinshaw says numerous new cases, upwards of ten, can be traced back to two private family gatherings. She added that made it easier for the spread to be contained.
Outbreaks linked to social gatherings aren't "completely unexpected", said Hinshaw, because, as restrictions are relaxed, more people are leaving their homes to visit with others. "But I must stress that we have the ability to prevent such cases by continuing to follow public health measures when gathering".
Dr. Deena Hinshaw, chief medical officer of health announced Friday that every Albertan is now eligible for COVID-19 testing regardless if they are symptomatic or if they have been in contact with a person who has tested positive.
"I know it may be hard or even seem rude to ask guests to bring their own food and drink and not share it, but it is necessary", she said.
Her warning was paired with a reminder that June 1 marks the start of Seniors Week in Alberta.
"We must remember the new normal is not the same as the old", she said.
She stressed the need to balance "the protections from COVID that we need and also being able to have the interactions, the employment and the opening of society that will support all aspects of health".
There have been 13 new cases, the lowest level since the global pandemic was declared, with one additional death.
The City of Lethbridge has 27 cases, three listed as active and 24 recovered.
