Of those new cases, eight are in the Interior Health region.

There have now been 1,119 cases in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 1,989 in Fraser Health, 146 in Vancouver Island Health, 377 in Interior Health, 91 in Northern Health and 65 among those who reside outside Canada. In total, there have been 3,787 cases in B.C. since January.

About 90 per cent of the new cases are in the lower mainland.

Of B.C.'s 319 active cases, 195 are in the Fraser Health region and 78 are in the Vancouver Coastal Health region.

No new deaths were announced on Tuesday and B.C.'s total stands at 195 dead, while 3,273 have now fully recovered.

There has been one new health-care facility outbreak at Maple Ridge Seniors Village, with one staff member infected.

Another outbreak at Fraser Valley Packers has now produced a total of 74 cases.

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said the new cases are not unexpected, noting that many new cases are related to private gatherings and small parties over the past month.

Health Minister Adrian Dix is urging people not to attend to parties, especially when the guest list is unknown.

"In all cases, the common factors are about what we're doing in close contact — talking, laughing, sharing drinks or food," Henry said.

There are currently eight people in hospital and four in critical care.
