37 of the new cases are in the north central zone which now has 623 active cases.

Prince Albert has 27 new cases and an active case total of 321.

The province also reported an additional 345 recoveries. The number of cases considered active is 4,682 but the government anticipates this number “will decline as older cases are reviewed and potentially shifted to recovered status.”
