There are 1,127 active cases of COVID-19 in the province, 2,786 people who are under active public health monitoring and 4,605 people who tested positive have recovered.

There have been no new COVID-19 related deaths, for a total of 209 deaths in British Columbia.

"Getting back to work and back to school is also about getting back to the basics with our COVID-19 safety measures. We need to redouble our efforts to ensure our layers of protection are always part of our daily routines — for everyone in our family. This will allow us to push our curve down once again," Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix said in a joint statement.

"Take some time to think about your personal circumstances and those of your family. Who may be vulnerable to severe illness and what are you doing to protect them? With each of us doing our part, we can protect our communities, our elders and our loved ones."

Since the start of the pandemic, there have been 1,974 cases of COVID-19 in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 3,112 in the Fraser Health region, 178 in the Island Health region, 445 in the Interior Health region, 164 in the Northern Health region and 79 cases of people who reside outside of Canada.
