|Will John Horgan bring a hammer?|
The Premier has plans to join Dr. Bonnie Henry
and Health Minister Adrian Dix at today's
COVID update which has been moved up to 1PM
With a weekend of data to share on the state of COVID in British Columbia over the last three days, the province's Provincial Health Officer Doctor Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix have moved up the regular time of 3 PM for the update, which is now scheduled for 1PM.
In addition to the two top health officials in the province set to deliver the latest data, Premier John Horgan will also be part of today's presentation, something which has caught the attention of the Legislature media.
An appearance that a few of those covering provincial politics suggest may indicate a signifiant announcement may be on the way.
When we last left Dr. Henry and Minister Dix, BC had recorded 908 new cases of COVID-19 on Friday, more than half of them found in the Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health Region. The results of Friday just the latest of the daily reviews to show some alarming spikes in the province's COVID reporting amid concerns that variant cases are taking hold.
Last week the Premier spoke to the province's vaccination program, but also reminded British Columbians that there is a need to continue to adhere to all of the public measures that have been put in place by the Provincial Health Officer.
Today's Update will be live-streamed across the province at 1 PM.
