VICTORIA, B.C. – Premier John Horgan held a press conference, Wednesday, regarding the ongoing COVID-19 situation in British Columbia.

During his weekly press conference, Horgan announced the state of emergency has been extended for an additional two weeks, the longest state of emergency in B.C.’s history with “no likely end in sight.”

The extension on the state of emergency is to ensure the transmission of COVID-19 remains low as the Province continues to move ahead.
