There were no new deaths, community outbreaks, or healthcare facility outbreaks in BC today.

But provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix announced 13 new cases of COVID-19 for a total of 2,947 cases in the province. 

Six cases previously reported have been removed from the total, as they were identified as residents of another province and will be reported in their home province. This change is consistent with regular protocol.

There were no new deaths related to the virus. The outbreak at Langley Lodge has been declared over, with active outbreaks continuing at three long-term care or assisted-living facilities and one acute-care facility. 

If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, isolate immediately and call 811 to arrange for testing. Federal quarantine orders require anyone coming to BC from outside of Canada to self-isolate for 14 days before interacting with others.
