Twelve more cases of COVID-19 have been identified in British Columbia over the past 24 hours, but active cases have dropped by four.

The new cases bring the total positive tests in the region to 2,990, but there remain 162 active cases province-wide. Interior Health saw no new cases, and there remain two active cases in the region.

Sixteen people in the province remain hospitalized with COVID-19, four of whom are in intensive care.

After six new virus-related deaths were announced Monday, from the prior three days, no new deaths have occurred over the past 24 hours. In total, 183 British Columbians have died from the virus.

No new outbreaks of the virus have been declared recently, and the outbreak at Abbotsford's Tabor Home has been officially declared over. There remains outbreaks at Vancouver's Holy Family Hospital long-term care facility and Langley's Maple Hill long-term care facility, along with one acute care facility in the province.

While no community outbreaks remain in B.C., Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says “new cases and community exposure events continue to occur in the community.”

A new “community exposure event” has been declared at Vancouver's Hotel Belmont bar and nightclub on June 27 and June 29.

"If you have been at one of these locations, monitor yourself for symptoms, limit your contact with others and contact 811 to arrange for testing if any symptoms develop,” Dr. Henry said.
