The Alberta government says landlords will not be able to evict anyone for not paying rent until at least the end of April while the province deals with the economic fallout of COVID-19.

The government says landlords will also not be allowed to hike rents while a state of public emergency remains in effect.

The province is forcing non-essential business, such as salons, dine-in restaurants, clothing stores and furniture stores to close.

The maximum size of groups is being reduced to 15 from 50 and vehicles are no longer being allowed into provincial parks.

Alberta is reporting 56 new cases of COVID-19, for a total of 542.
