Dr. Bonnie Henry reported the state still has the capacity to decrease the amount of COVID-19 cases now being viewed, but individuals will need to follow along with general health protocols. We offer our condolences to everyone who has lost their loved ones during the COVID-19 pandemic.

"Let's make it a safe, small-group long weekend", Health Minister Adrian Dix and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said in a joint statement. Ever since mid-July, health officials have especially warned against large gatherings, especially where alcohol is involved; it has resulted in a spike in cases and COVID-19 exposure warnings throughout the province.

She added the province still has the ability to reduce the number of COVID-19 cases now being seen, but people need to follow public health protocols.

There have been 4,706 people who tested positive have since recovered.

There has been one new assisted-living facility outbreak at KinVillage in the Fraser Health region.

The curve of overall infections is trending upward with a record one-day number of 124 infections announced by health officials on August 28. "Your actions this weekend and every day make a difference", added the statement.

There are three coast guard vessels, five planes and specially trained divers involved in the search-and-rescue mission. The ship was on route to the Port of Jingtang in Tangshan, China, with an estimated journey of approximately 17 days.

Henry presented data showing that B.C. residents have been making roughly 65 to 70 per cent of the amount of interpersonal connections they had been before the pandemic began.

"Our well-being as a community, as a province, is about getting back to work, getting back into classrooms, keeping businesses going and staying healthy", she said.

Another death recorded in B.C. "To be successful in this next phase, we need to step back to safely move forward".

"The symposium is focused on furthering our understanding of the impacts of COVID-19 and the related public health measures".

"We have the knowledge and we have the tools that we can all use to be safe, no matter where we may be".

VANCOUVER-British Columbia is in a crucial stage when it has to do with a possible explosion of COVID-19 diseases, B.C.'s provincial health officer cautioned Thursday.
