The provincial government has rescheduled a big announcement.

Premier Jason Kenney was planning to relax COVID-19 restrictions Tuesday (Dec.14) afternoon, allowing more people to gather for the holidays. However, he was called to an emergency meeting with the prime minister and other premiers about the Omicron variant which pushed back the briefing.

The announcement is now scheduled for 9 a.m. on Wednesday. 

Kenney will be joined by health minister Jason Copping and chief medical officer of health Dr. Deena Hinshaw.
