Published 4:10 PDT, Fri May 15, 2020
Fifteen new cases of COVID-19 were reported by the province Friday.
At the same time, Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced two new COVID-19 outbreaks: in the acute-care department at Abbotsford Regional Hospital and at the Oppenheimer Group, a fruit and vegetable processing plant in Coquitlam.
In total, 15 long-term care or assisted-living facilities and five acute-care units have active cases.
Five more people have died of causes related to COVID-19 for a total of 140.
Health teams continue to provide support for community outbreaks in the poultry sector, at the Mission Institution and with those connected to the Kearl Lake plant in Alberta.
New outbreaks demonstrate the continued risk of COVID-19 in communities, say Henry and Dix. They continue to encourage British Columbians to stay local, stay apart, and be thoughtful as the province works towards recovery.
Provincial parks are now open for day use. Spending the day in a nearby park is a great way to stay close to home this weekend and put safe social interaction ‘rules’ into action.
