Alberta is declaring a state of public emergency in reaction to the novel coronavirus.

Premier Jason Kenney has announced that any gathering larger than 50 people, including weddings and funerals must be cancelled.

Public recreation facilities, casinos, bingo halls, bars, museums and art galleries will also be shuttered if not already.

Worship services and conferences also fall under the 50 person rule.

Kenney says his government will spend $60 million on charities and non profit groups who are helping people cope with the effects of the virus.
