Dr. Bonnie Henry- Aug. 31 2020

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said 123 of the cases were recorded between Friday and Saturday, 116 were reported between Saturday and Sunday, 107 between Sunday and Monday, and 83 new cases were confirmed between Monday and Tuesday.

The amendments to public health orders come as the province reported 429 new cases of COVID-19 over a four-day period, bringing the total to 6,591.

"In addition, liquor sales in all bars, pubs and restaurants must cease at 10 p.m. and these venues must close at 11 p.m, unless they're providing full meal service, in which case the meal service can continue and not serve alcohol".

Music and background sounds must not be louder than the volume of normal conversation in those venues.

"So that is the reason we are putting in these additional restrictions today", Henry said.

The former San Francisco 49ers quarterback fought to get himself a job in the league, however, he was never able to do so. Reid played for the Carolina Panthers in 2018 and 2019, but was released by the team in March and is now a free agent.

"Being indoors is riskier than being outdoors", said Dr. Henry.

On Sunday evening, the head of a West Vancouver private school sent a letter to parents stating there had been a COVID-19 exposure at a Grade 9 day camp.

"We do it for things we think will make a difference".

"These restrictions are meant to take away that late night temptation that people have where we know there's been mixing going on and where transmission is happening in these venues across the province", Dr. Henry said. There are two new deaths on in the Fraser Health Region and one in Vancouver Coastal Health.

Across the province, 1386 cases are considered active, and over three thousand people are under active health monitoring due to exposure to a known case. Of those, 32 are in hospital with 12 in intensive or critical care. Two more people, both in long-term care, have died of the virus.
