Data was not made available for the number of active cases or the number of those being monitored by public health.
Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry called upon British Columbians to "hold the line" against the virus by avoiding unnecessary travel and getting vaccinated as soon as they are eligible.
"Our cases are still much higher than we want them to be, and that tells us transmission is still hapepning in our community.
"The number of people in hospital is at the highest levels we've seen in these past few days, and people requiring specialized acute care is the highest ever," Henry said.
On the vaccine front, B.C. has now administered 1,749,375 doses, with 90,000 of those being second doses. Vaccinations are expected to accelerate. Next week, the province will fold the Johnson & Johnson (Jansen) vaccine into its various vaccine programs.
In addition, more than one million doses of the Pfizer vaccine are expected in May, meaning the age-based program will be accelerated, as will the essential worker program.
"This is the good news. This is what we have to look forward to in the coming weeks," Henry said.
Henry said the most efficient way to ensure you're vaccinated as soon as possible is to register. Registration can be done online at getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca.
The province is currently booking vaccines for those age 58 and older (born in 1963 or earlier).
