BC’s updated COVID-19 count
Published 11:07 PDT, Fri April 3, 2020
Minister of Health Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced six more deaths related to COVID-19 in BC Thursday, for a total of 31 province-wide.
A new community outbreak has been detected with an inmate in a correctional centre in the Interior Health region. The inmate has been isolated in accordance with response protocols.
Because residents at long-term care and assisted living facilities are especially vulnerable to COVID-19, the province is doing their best to ensure workers provide services at a single location rather than multiple locations, reducing risk of transmission between facilities.
The risk remains high for everyone in BC, Henry and Dix said. Physical distancing, good hand hygiene, and staying home as much as possible are the best protective measures to take.
In the coming weeks, there are a number of major religious celebrations. Dix and Henry call on faith leaders to postpone in-person gatherings and find ways to connect and celebrate in other ways.
“We need to continue to follow these orders and precautions that we have in place. We must do all we can to protect our families and our communities across British Columbia,” said Henry.
