Joint statement on B.C.’s COVID-19 response, latest updates

Adrian Dix, Minister of Health, and Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s provincial health officer, have issued the following joint statement regarding updates on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) response in British Columbia:

“Today, we are announcing 25 new cases, for a total of 3,053 cases in British Columbia.

“There are 187 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, and 2,679 people who tested positive have recovered.

“Of the total COVID-19 cases, 16 individuals are hospitalized, five of whom are in intensive care. The remaining people with COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation.

“Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 990 cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 1,610 in the Fraser Health region, 135 in the Island Health region, 202 in the Interior Health region, 65 in the Northern Health region and 51 cases of people who reside outside of Canada.

“There has been one new COVID-19 related death in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, for a total of 187 deaths in British Columbia. We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost their loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“There have been no new health-care facility outbreaks. In total, two long-term care or assisted-living facilities and one acute care facility have active outbreaks.

“While there are no active community outbreaks in B.C., new cases and community exposure events continue to occur in the community.

“As we continue through summer, simple steps will help us to keep COVID-19 low and slow in British Columbia.

“When spending more time with friends and family, whether that is close to home or on vacation elsewhere in the province, we remind all British Columbians to avoid closed spaces, crowds and close contact with others.

“We know that the more layers of protection we use, the safer we will be. Let’s all ‘layer up’ by washing our hands regularly, using barriers, staying a safe distance from others and using a mask when that is challenging.

“The actions you take every day make a difference and will help to protect all of us.”
