The province first reported suspected cases of MIS-C, a rare disease that affects children and is associated with COVID-19, in August.
But it was only this week that serological tests confirmed that a child with symptoms had contracted COVID.
“The child has fully recovered and is at home,” Henry said.
“To date, we have had 16 children who have been assessed for MIS-C but have had no association with COVID-19, and in the assessment of pediatricians much more aligned with what we normally see in the Kawasaki syndrome in children – also a relatively new syndrome associated with infectious disease in some cases.
Henry also reported on a new community cluster in the Indoor Health region and a FedEx office near the Kelowna airport.
Contact tracing was ongoing and there was no risk to the public, Henry added.
The death toll in the province remained unchanged at 250.
Almost 84 percent of British Columbia’s 11,034 cases have recovered.
