In the previous three 24-hour reporting periods, no COVID-19-related deaths have been recorded by the province, officials announced on Monday. There were however 30 new cases reported in that time, bringing the total number of cases in B.C. to 2,659. Most of the new cases in B.C. are related to known outbreaks, including one large family gathering.
Sixteen people are currently hospitalized with the virus in B.C., including four in intensive care. Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says if British Columbians are conscientious today in the measures they take, there is a high chance that travel within the province will be possible for the summer vacation season.
“We can all enjoy this summer,” Henry said. “What you do today does make a difference.”
