Waves 2 and 3 of Connect Care were temporarily delayed in March, given the significantly increased demands on our frontline physicians, staff and services, and the increased health risks our patients and healthcare teams faced due to COVID-19. While our response and management of COVID-19 continues across the province, we will be carefully and thoughtfully moving forward with preparations for the next waves of Connect Care, maintaining our ability to be flexible and ready for COVID-19 patients in the weeks and months to come, should demands change again in our province.
We have adjusted our rollout plan based on the impact of COVID-19. The launch dates for waves 2, 3, and 4 are as follows:
- Wave 2: Launch date - Saturday, October 24, 2020
- Wave 3: Launch date - Saturday, February 27, 2021
- Wave 4: Launch date - Saturday, June 5, 2021
Community practitioners are an important part of every Albertan’s care team, and your ongoing support is vital as together we move this provincial health care priority ahead. Thank you for your support.
