B.C. sees 25 new COVID-19 cases, community exposure tracked

B.C.’s health ministry recorded 25 new COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours, with a total 16 people in hospital in the province.

One more person has died of coronavirus-related causes, for a total of 187 in B.C., and outbreak procedures remain in effect at two long-term care facilities. They are Maple Hill in Langley and Holy Family Hospital in Vancouver.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said summer activities call for caution as infections are still being transmitted in communities.

“While there are no active community outbreaks in B.C., new cases and community exposure events continue to occur in the community,” Henry said in a statement July 10. “As we continue through summer, simple steps will help us to keep COVID-19 low and slow in British Columbia.

“When spending more time with friends and family, whether that is close to home or on vacation elsewhere in the province, we remind all British Columbians to avoid closed spaces, crowds and close contact with others.”
