Their deaths highlight the devastating impact COVID-19 can have when it infiltrates seniors' home, Henry said.

On Friday, health officials announced a record-breaking 911 new cases of COVID-19, and 11 more deaths related to the virus.

A total of 2,354 cases from over the weekend were added to the province's total to date, which includes 277 historical cases that were previously missed because of a data reporting error in the Fraser Health region.

The province's total is 33,238 with 8,855 of those cases considered active.

Of the total COVID-19 cases, 316 individuals are hospitalized, 75 of whom are in intensive care.

There have been five new health-care facility outbreaks and two outbreaks have been declared over. "We need to come together again", Henry said. As well, 10,139 people are under active public health monitoring as a result of identified exposure to known cases.
