Doctor urges people not to interpret relaxed restrictions as ‘carte blanche’ to go back to normal

Emergency room doctors say their confidence in loosening lockdown restrictions is growing, as the number of COVID-19 patients admitted to intensive care falls.

Dr. Daniel Kalla, the head of the emergency department at St. Paul’s and Mount Saint Joseph Hospital, agrees

“I hope we’ll catch up with Alberta. But I do think we’re going in the right direction when it comes to testing. I don’t think you can know where you’re out, till you have a proper sampling of the whole community. I’m hopeful we will do that,” said Kalla.
