On a positive note, it has been one week without any virus-related deaths, keeping the death toll at 195.

There are 386 active cases.

3,353 people who tested positive have recovered.

BC health officials added, “As we see new COVID-19 hot spots emerge and the new cases creep up in every health authority, we have to keep our firewall strong. Like a wildfire, COVID-19 has the potential to rapidly burn out of control and we need to put out these flare-ups. Today, more than 1,500 people throughout our province are self-isolating, unable to leave their home unless it is to get medical care because they have COVID-19 or have had a high-risk exposure to the virus”.
