BC health authorities announced only four new cases of COVID-19 today, and no new deaths.

There were also no new health-care facility outbreaks, said Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. In total, 15 long-term care or assisted-living facilities and one acute-care unit have active outbreaks.

Public health teams continue to provide support for community outbreaks at federal corrections facilities, the processing facilities in the poultry sector and for individuals connected to the Kearl Lake plant in Alberta.

Workplaces planning to reopen should consult WorkSafeBC’s COVID-19 guidelines. New information is added to the website every day or call the WorkSafeBC Prevention Information Line at 1 888 621-SAFE.

Henry and Dix also commended the federal government’s decision to maintain the restrictions on cruise ships in Canadian waters until October. 

“Easing restrictions can be done only after thoughtful consideration. Our focus and priority are the health and safety of all British Columbians,” they said. “With your help and all of us doing our part, we will get through this storm together.”
