The province has recorded 26 new cases since Friday, Dr. Bonnie Henry said on Monday (June 29).
The new cases breakdown to 10 from Friday to Saturday, 14 from Saturday to Sunday and two between Sunday and Monday. B.C. had no new deaths during those days.
B.C. total number of test positive cases has grown to 2,904. Henry said three new cases had emerged from Brandi’s Exotic Show Lounge, where an alert had been issued by Vancouver Coastal Health on Saturday.
She reiterated that anyone who had visited the strip club between the hours of 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on June 21 to 24, or midnight to 3 a.m. on June 25 should monitor their symptoms.
Henry said that as B.C. enters Phase 3, with non-essential travel now allowed, “how we interact with others doesn’t change. She urged people to stay home if they have any symptoms and respect the communities they visit.
“We have flattened our curve here in B.C…. but everyone needs to continue to do their part,” she said.
“We can’t afford to have exceptions or half measures.”
Henry said that a plan for long-term care visits was expected to come Tuesday, following months of little to no visits for seniors in long-term care.
