By health authority there have been 969 cases in Vancouver Coastal Health, 1,514 cases in Fraser Health, 131 in Vancouver Island Health, 199 in Interior Health and 65 in Northern Health.

With 2,545 recovered, there are now 159 active cases in the province. Of those, 17 are in hospital and five are in critical care. A total of 174 have died since the pandemic took hold in B.C. at the end of January.

Health officials also delivered a report Friday morning about the impact on First Nations in B.C. A total of 86 First Nations individuals had contracted COVID-19 up to June 14, which the province called low impact.

"While we are encouraged by this outcome, we recognize that the result has come with hardship. The need to put aside important cultural gatherings to maintain a safe physical distance and to limit visitors has had a great social, mental and economic impact on many," reads a statement released by the province Friday afternoon.
