Provincial update
Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry’s daily briefing today covered three days since the latest update on Friday, reporting 366 new cases of COVID-19 in BC, as well as and four more deaths.

Since the beginning of the pandemic, 8,207 British Columbians have contracted the virus, and 227 have passed away.

In light of this ongoing spike in new cases, Dr. Henry continues to urge British Columbians to stick to a social bubble of six people for any gatherings. She also reiterated that indoor gatherings are always riskier that outdoor gatherings.

Even though the numbers in our communities are going down, the virus is still all around us, and we need to remain vigilant.
