As for cases in hospital, there are currently 11, with five of those in ICU.
For almost a week, the Province’s COVID-19 death count still remains at 168.
Henry says as travel is expected to increase over the summer months, British Columbians are reminded that the impact on small communities with limited health-care resources can be severe, and that travel should be avoided if possible.
Instead, British Columbians are suggested to consider stay-cations to help prevent the spread of the virus.
