This Sunday is both National Indigenous Peoples Day and Father’s Day—but it’s important to celebrate safely, said BC health officials today.

“Let’s celebrate the incredible diversity within our province and how this enriches us all,” added provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix.

“If you choose to come to together with loved ones and friends, take the necessary precautions to do so safely, with kindness, compassion and tolerance.”

Henry and Dix also announced seven new COVID-19 confirmed positive cases, for a total of 2,790 cases in British Columbia.

There were no new deaths, and no new health-care facility outbreaks, with active outbreaks continuing at six long-term care or assisted-living facilities and one acute care facility.

There were also no new community outbreaks. Public health teams continue to provide support for the three remaining community locations.
