Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is encouraging British Columbians to take a survey, launched by the BC Centre of Disease Control.

The survey looks to establish the impacts of COVID-19, and help develop a plan for a potential second wave.

Dr. Henry announced just 7 new cases of COVID-19 in B.C. today, for a provincial total of 2,360.

This is the lowest case count since March 12th, before a public health emergency was declared in the province.
