COVID-19 Update May 22

COVID-19 Update May 22:

📊 There are 18 new confirmed cases in BC. There are a total of 2,507 cases. Of these, 310 cases are active. There are 1,236 cases in the Fraser Health region.

✅ WorkSafe BC has released guidelines for workers to know what to expect of employers in Phase 2. The guidelines can be found here: https://www.worksafebc.com/…/co…/what-workers-should-expect…

🔴 I am very sad to report that three more people have passed away due to COVID-19 in BC. My thoughts are with the families and communities of these three individuals in this incredibly difficult time.

💻 Tonight at 7:15 I will be joined by Coquitlam – Burke Mountain MLA Joan Isaacs, the CEO of Fraser Health Dr. Victoria Lee and Fraser Health Chief Medical Officer Dr. Martin Lavoie to answer your health-care related questions.

Important advice for Dr. Henry:

“Phase 2 of our BC’s Restart Plan is about pausing before moving forward; being thoughtful and cautious to keep everyone safe, while COVID-19 remains in our communities. While Phase 2 is now underway, the provincial health officer order restricting mass gatherings to no more than 50 individuals remains in place. Further, the order has been amended to also include no more than 50 vehicles for outdoor drive-in events, with a restriction on the sale of refreshments. Anyone attending these events must stay in their cars unless they have to go to washrooms, which must be serviced with running water for proper hand hygiene.”

Be safe. Be well.
