26 new cases, 0 deaths

26 new cases of COVID-19 have been identified in British Columbia over the past three days, and there have been no new deaths.

The new cases bring the total positive tests in the province to 2,904, but 153 active cases remain. Of these, 18 are currently in hospital care and five are in ICU.

One additional case has been confirmed in the Interior Health region, bringing active cases to two. 

No new outbreaks of the virus were announced Monday, but one exposure event was declared at Brandi’s Exotic Show Lounge, a Vancouver strip club.

Any person who was at the club at night from June 21-24 should monitor themselves for COVID-19 symptoms. 

The outbreak at Burnaby’s Beresford Warming Centre has officially been declared over. 

"As we move into this phase of our restart plan, we must remember Covid 19 remains a risk for everyone," says Dr. Henry. 

"Even though our new cases are low, we need to keep it there. As we gradually transition we need to remain vigilant. We need to remember that we need to minimize, we need to manage the number of cases that we do have and we need to modify our activities to make sure we’re not putting our community at risk.

"A key part of our efforts to contain the spread is for all of us to support these contact tracing methods and by keeping our numbers of contacts - our bubbles - small, and by paying attention to where we go and who we are seeing. It is a team effort that we need to continue together in BC."
