Data from the BC CDC continues to bring some positive news for residents of the northwest, that as the province continues to work towards removing many of the Public Health Orders and measures in place for much of the last two years.

This week's data  for the period of March 6-12 provided for reduced numbers for many communities of the region, with only Terrace still an area of some note holding steady at 20 cases, the same number as was recorded last week.

The results for Prince Rupert provided for a slight decline from a week ago, with 6 cases recorded in the current period, down three  from a week ago. 

Smithers also recorded a slight decline to 9 cases this week.

Most other communities held to the level of last week or recorded a slight decline, with the exception of the Nechako region which saw an increase.
