We have had 177 new cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 484 in the Fraser Health region, 16 in the Island Health region, 18 in the Interior Health region, 21 in the Northern Health region, a significant one day spike that brings the Northern BC count to 540 cases since January.
One new case of COVID has been recorded with a person who resides outside of Canada.
The escalation of reported cases served as the preamble to another reminder for the public to work together towards the goal of reducing the steadily rising curve, with the two health officials noting that increased levels are now being seen in all regions of the province.“We need everyone working together to stay small, stay local and help us slow the spread of COVID-19 in our province.
