To date, B.C. has had 3,328 cases of COVID-19. That figure includes 1,731 cases in the Fraser Health region, 1,043 cases in the Vancouver Health region, 291 cases in the Interior Health region, 140 cases in the Island Health region, 69 cases in the Northern Health region and 54 cases from those who reside outside Canada.

Of those cases, 266 remain active, with 2,873 fully recovered and 189 deaths since the province's first case in late January.

"As we have seen in many other places, a few missteps can quickly result is a significant resurgence in new cases of COVID-19," reads a joint statement by Health Minister Adrian Dix and Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. "Here in B.C., our curve is trending upward, and we need to bend our curve back down to where it belongs."

The statement continues and says many of the recent cases are the result of community transmission from an increase in social interactions.

"This trend is a concern, but we can turn this trend around," it reads.
