There was one new death in the province related to the virus reported in the past 24 hours. Currently there are 1,688 active cases in B.C. and 4,156 people under public health monitoring.

“There have been no new community outbreaks. There continue to be exposure events around the province. Public alerts and notifications are posted on the BC Centre for Disease Control’s (CDC) website and on all health authorities’ websites,” reads the statement.
