Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry also announced a change in how figures are reported by health region, with non-residents now reported separately.

By health region since the pandemic began, there have been 982 cases in Vancouver Coastal Health, 1,596 cases in Fraser Health, 133 in Vancouver Island Health, 201 in Interior Health, 65 in Northern Health and 51 non-resident cases.

No new community outbreaks were announced Thursday, however a second case has been linked to a community exposure event at the No. 5 Orange nightclub in Vancouver, and Henry advised anyone who attended the club on July 1, July 3, July 4 or July 7 to monitor for symptoms, limit contact with others to call 811 for testing if any symptoms appear.

There has also been no new health-care facility outbreaks, though one acute care unit outbreak and two long-term care home outbreaks remain.

To date, health-care facility outbreaks have produced 639 cases (of 3,028 total) affecting 393 residents and 246 staff.

With 2,667 people now fully recovered, the province has 175 active cases. Of those, 17 are in hospital and four are in critical care.
