The province registered 46 new cases on Saturday, there were 47 more on Sunday and in the past 24 hours, 30 new cases have been announced by the health ministry.

A total of 66 people are hospitalized, including 14 in intensive care.

The statement notes that the number of new cases, as well as the total number of cases, are provisional due to delays in processing the data, and they will be verified once confirmed.

The provincial death toll from the disease is now 1,760 lives lost out of 145,722 cases confirmed to date.

So far, 5,741,691 doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered, including 2,064,190 second doses.

As of Monday, 78.8% of eligible British Columbians had received their first dose.

Vaccinations and restrictions

Health officials have stressed the importance of vaccinations as activity levels rise for all British Columbians.

Anyone who has not yet registered for a vaccine in British Columbia can do so in the following ways:

The province is currently in the third of a four-step reopening plan that aims to lift virtually all remaining COVID-19 restrictions by September.

Residents of long-term care facilities in British Columbia will also soon be allowed to visit friends and family without restrictions, provided they are fully immunized.

From July 19, visitors will no longer need to plan their visits in advance. There will also no longer be a limit on the number of visitors each resident can have.

Visitors who are not fully vaccinated will need to wear a mask.

Social events and gatherings will also resume in long-term care homes. Indoor gatherings can include residents and staff, outdoor gatherings can include family and friends. Adult day programs and residential respite may also be fully resumed.
