There is a new outbreak at a healthcare facility at Eagle Ridge Hospital in Port Moody.
Henry and Dix are also urging anyone over 12 to get vaccinated in early summer, and travel is now permitted.
“We encourage everyone to start your summer off right by making sure you get your first dose, if you haven’t already,” the release said.
“As we move forward with BC’s restart plan, let us remember that the virus is still circulating in communities here in BC and neighboring provinces and territories. If you are planning a trip, make sure you get vaccinated before you go – this is your ticket to safe travel this summer.
