  • FILE- Dr. Henry said Tuesday the recorded number of coronavirus cases in B.C. is now 617

She also emphasized that people returning home from travel with mild symptoms did not need to be tested because the source of their infection was known and having them leave their homes could expose others to the virus. Everyone who has died was over 70 years of age.

Low and moderate income people who have experienced significant loss of income due to COVID-19 will be eligible for the rebate.

"The number of cases we've been seeing will continue to rise - it will", said Dix.

The province is reporting 145 new cases of COVID-19 in BC today, 67 of which were confirmed after yesterday's press conference.

"Additionally, of the total COVID-19 cases, 59 individuals are now hospitalized, 23 of those are in intensive care, and the remaining people who have tested positive for COVID-19 are recovering at home in self-isolation".

"As well, there are additional measures in the outbreak facilities around personal protective equipment, restriction of visitors and restriction of visitors in all of our long-term care homes across the province", Henry said. "We are still in the waiting and watching phase". Fifty-five of those people are health care workers.

"We are actively looking at getting as much as we can", said Henry, who also mentioned using alternate supplies, but did not elaborate.

She said strong protective measures have been implemented at the homes and an order is coming to bar the practice of care home workers taking shifts in several different facilities.

"It does draw attention, again, to the fragility of our long-term care facilities and the risk that we put the residents of long-term care (in)", Henry said.

She said health officials are considering stockpiling, reusing and searching globally for more protective equipment. We have had a number of supplies on order for some time.

Health Minister Adrian Dix said test capacity is now at about 3,500 per day via BCCDC and private laboratories such as LifeLabs.

"We inform when there is a public health reason to inform people of a circumstance of a Care Home, of an institution of something that's a problem, then we have to get out and inform people and that's what we do".

Regarding maintaining physical distance, Henry said the provincial ban on gatherings of more than 50 people is not a scientific limit, but a practical one.

Henry called on faith leaders, and all British Columbians, to stop gathering in groups, even small ones, if they don't live together. Celebrations and ceremonies need to be postponed.

"Even two or three (people) can be that transmission point", she said.
