The latest developments on COVID-19 in Canada

New Brunswick is now in phase 2 of its COVID-19 recovery plan, which is aimed at the reopening of businesses and activities while working to prevent a resurgence of transmission.

"The new outbreaks demonstrate that there continues to be risk of COVID-19 in our communities", said Henry.

Dr. Henry said the same rules for social interactions apply to businesses: "fewer faces, less time together, bigger spaces". As well, businesses must screen customers for illness as best as they can, and ensure that (employees) have the ability to remain at home if they're ill. One patient in the Vancouver Coastal health region died, raising the provincial death total in 141.

"There can be no flexibility on this piece", Dr. Henry said.

They reported 15 new cases of the disease in B.C. between noon on Thursday and noon on Friday.

British Columbia health officials announced 21 new test-positive coronavirus cases and one additional death on Saturday. "We must continue to be measured and thoughtful with each step forward in our COVID-19 recovery".

There have been no new health-care outbreaks since the new acute-care outbreak in the Abbotsford Regional Hospital was announced yesterday, involving six staff and two patients.

In a statement Friday night, the Oppenheimer Group confirmed a third case, and disclosed that the three infected employees occasionally carpool to work together.

"Much of the spread of COVID-19 has occurred because in the early stages of symptoms it's often mild and people may not recognize it, or they may not realize that this is what is causing the symptoms that they've had". All 15 new cases were recorded in the Fraser Health region, as were four of the five new deaths.

Broken down by health region, Henry said there are 878 cases in Vancouver Coastal Health, 1,184 in Fraser Health, 126 on Vancouver Island, 181 in Interior Health, and 59 in Northern Health.

They say while the number of confirmed cases remains at 120, the number of active cases is zero and all of those who had contracted the virus have recovered.

The survey, which was launched last week, seeks British Columbians' input on how the health crisis, as well as the government's response to it, has affected their lives.

She said wearing masks make sense in hair salons and on transit buses.

Nova Scotia has 35,703 negative test results, while 930 people have now recovered and their cases of COVID-19 are considered resolved. We offer our condolences to the family, friends, and caregivers, and to everyone who has lost their loved ones.
