Meanwhile, six more people passed away in BC as the provincial death toll is now at 1,667.
Over 2.7 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in BC, 142,406 of which are second doses.
“On Tuesday, the details of the Restart Plan will be shared with everyone,” added Henry, “at that point, you’ll be able to start to plan for what that means for you, your family and your business. There are no changes for individuals or businesses until that time.”
She says the province will be taking a gradual approach to the restart while monitoring cases to ensure they don’t start to creep up once again.
