Over the four-day long-weekend period, B.C. has recorded 1,533 new cases of COVID-19 and 26 further deaths due to the disease.
Of those new cases, 92 were in the Interior Health region, averaging about 23 cases per day, down considerably from recent weeks where the region averaged around 50 cases per day.
The province has now seen 74,283 cases of COVID-19. Of those, 68,705 have recovered, 1,314 have died and 4,189 remain active.
Another 7,136 people are under active public health monitoring due to exposure to confirmed cases.
In hospital, there are now 231 patients across B.C. hospitals, including 74 in critical care units.
Variant cases continue to emerge slowly in the province, up to 60 total cases as of Tuesday, according to Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry.
Of the variants, 40 are the strain first identified in the U.K., 19 are the South Africa strain and one is a newly identified Nigerian strain.
With vaccine shipments slowly returning following manufacturer delays, the province is reporting the administration of another 8,773 doses of vaccine.
To date, 171,755 doses have been given in the province, with 22,914 of those being the second of two required doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine.
Dr. Henry said deliveries of the Pfizer vaccine are resuming this week, with some already arriving, but also with some even further delayed due to recent weather events in the United States and Eastern Canada.
"Supply remains somewhat limited. We need to continue to build up the program and stability in supply," she said.
Henry said the effort remains focused on those most vulnerable — seniors in long-term care homes.
