COVID-19 Update June 3

COVID-19 Update June 3

📊 There are 22 new confirmed cases in BC. There are a total of 2,623 cases in BC. Of these, 214 are active cases. There are 1,332 cases in the Fraser Health region.

 The outbreak at The Cedars assisted-living facility in Mission has now officially been declared over.

🔴 Sadly, one more person has passed away due to COVID-19 in BC. My thoughts are with their community and family as they grieve the loss of a loved one.

Dr. Henry offered some important thoughts on last weekend’s large demonstrations:

“Racialized communities face obstacles that others to do not, and we have seen British Columbians proudly stand up and speak out against racism. Exercising our right to peaceful demonstration is extremely important, and equally important is keeping our communities, loved ones and friends safe during this pandemic.

Whether going to the grocery store, seeing friends on a patio or attending a peaceful demonstration, the same rules for safe physical distancing apply.

Be mindful of the risks you are taking and continue to follow the provincial health officer’s order to limit gatherings to no more than 50 people.

Consider alternative ways to peacefully demonstrate, as we have seen elsewhere. Gather in smaller numbers in multiple locations, maintain a safe physical distance from those around you and use a non-medical cloth mask for the brief periods when in closer contact to others”

Be safe. Be well.
