B.C. reports 2960 new COVID-19 cases, eight deaths over weekend

BC expands vaccine registration to all adults

COVID-19 restrictions extended by five weeks, additional measures added

There are now 441 people in hospital, an increase of 73 patients from last week, with 138 people in intensive care, an increase of 17 patients.

"If you live in the Fraser Health area, by all means take a few days, get outside, perhaps go to a campground in your local area, but do not try and book somewhere outside of your area because the tourism operator in that community will not book you passage", Horgan said.

There are now 5,872 cases of COVID-19 that are confirmed variants of concern in our province.

As of Friday, close to 1.3 million doses of the vaccines have been administered in B.C.

Another eight deaths were attributed to the virus over the weekend, bringing BC's death toll to 1,530.

The outbreaks at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and the Segal Family Health Centre are now over. The two were admitted to intensive care due to the disease - described by B.C. Children's Hospital Dr.

AstraZeneca will be available in pharmacies to people over the age of 40. We are doing this after a careful review of the evidence that initially led to a pause in the expanded AstraZeneca vaccine program for younger workers.

Current restrictions include a ban on indoor dining and fitness groups, as well as indoor social gatherings and events.

Horgan said the province has also been working with representatives from the tourism industry "to reduce - in fact, eliminate - bookings from people outside of a particular area".

Premier John Horgan says the province's goal is to restrict people's ability to leave their health authority. They are taking care of our friends and loved ones and we need to take care of them through our actions, so they can continue to do their jobs for us.
