Officials have warned that if British Columbia continues on this upward trend, there will soon be more new cases of COVID-19 than at the previous peak of the pandemic.

The province’s latest modeling figures, released last week, showed cases will continue to rise in September if people don’t change their behavior.

BC provincial health worker Dr Bonnie Henry said last week that the biggest concern remains private parties inside and gatherings with people outside of their bubble.

On Tuesday, the government of British Columbia again extended the provincial state of emergency, which will now remain in effect until the end of the day on September 1, 2020.
