He said two more people - men in their 80s - had died from COVID-19, bringing the total number of fatalities in Alberta to 11.
Alberta has recorded 117 new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total to 871, Dr. Deena Hinshaw said at her update Wednesday afternoon.
Alberta Health is tracking outbreaks at three long-term care facilities, two in Calgary and one in Edmonton.
The province has completed over 53,000 tests and 142 people have recovered from the virus.
The 29 new cases Monday are lower than those revealed in recent daily announcements.
By doubling every seven days rather than five, the number of COVID-19 infections drops to 8,800 by the end of the month, according to Mody.

"We're in this situation because we want to get ahead of this, but we can't get ahead of it without understanding what's happening in our province and how it's different", he said. That will help deal with outbreaks, Hinshaw said. Individuals in isolation who live in apartment buildings or high rises must remain in their units and are not allowed to use elevators or staircases to get outside.
Kenney argues that would maintain COVID-19 physical distancing protocols while ensuring truck drivers can comfortably stay on the road. Edmonton now has 164 cases while the central zone has 46, the north has 45 and the south has 12.
But academics, including Williamson and Christopher Naugler, associate dean at the U of C's Cumming School of Medicine, are frequently producing models anyway, which they're sending to government health officials to give the best information available about where the COVID-19 pandemic is likely to lead Alberta.
Of that total, 77 cases involve health-care workers, including some from continuing-care facilities. "People should be as concerned about the number of cases we have today as they were about the number of cases yesterday and the day before because our per cent positivity this week has been relatively stable".
