Alberta Health Services (AHS) is warning residents of a phone scam involving COVID-19 and credit card information.
There are 23 new confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Alberta, bringing the total number of cases in the province to 97.
Kenney finished the press conference, saying, "People should be careful, they should be responsible but they should be confident".
Kenney said the declaration is limited to health care powers, where section 52 of the act allows a 60-day state of emergency to "prompt co-ordination of action or special regulation of persons or property is required in order to protect the public health".
"These measures are necessary if we are to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our province", said Dr. Deena Hinshaw, Alberta's Chief Medical Officer of Health.
Venues deemed to be essential services including grocery stores, airports, homeless shelters, soup kitchens and the Alberta legislature building will remain open.
Citizens are also banned from public places like casinos, bingo halls, theatres, children's play centres, recreation centres and arenas, science centres, museums and art galleries, community centres, fitness facilities, and entertainment facilities like movie theatres.
"The measures introduced today will be hard on all of us, but I believe we are ready and able to rise to the challenge before us", Hinshaw said.
Sit-down restaurants are limited to half their capacity, but only up to 50 people.
The number is up from 74 cases reported on Monday and the one case the province had only one day ago.
The limitations on mass gatherings include places of worship, weddings, and restaurants, while take out, delivery, and drive through services are still permitted, though sit-in restaurants, cafes, and food courts will be capped at either 50 people or 50% of regular capacity, if that capacity is lower than 100. Licensed facilities will also be permitted to deliver liquor to help boost their ability to generate income. Until further notice, all Albertans are restricted from attending bars and nightclubs.
