There were no new community outbreaks, although there continue to be community exposure events.
Getting back to work and back to school is also about getting back to the basics with our COVID-19 safety measures, said provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix. Layers of protection should always be part of our daily routines to allow us to push our curve back down again.
