The IDPH says 85.58% of Kane County residents age 65 and older and 58.84% of residents age 16 to 64 have had at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

The number of previously reported cases that have now recovered is two.

Henry said there were 277 cases identified from Friday to Sunday - or 92 a day on average (96 on Friday, 113 on Saturday and 68 on Sunday).

Hospitalizations were little changed, with 32 people hospitalized with COVID-19, up from 30 on Tuesday, and no people hospitalized awaiting test results, down from three on Tuesday, according to Public Health data. This is the lowest number in hospital since November 8.

The four new deaths bring the total to 1,738 in B.C. since the pandemic began.

In total, 4,165,142 doses of vaccine have been given out, with 710,847 people now fully vaccinated.

The province is still giving out first doses as well, including to youths between the ages of 12 and 17.

These numbers are driving the ongoing B.C. restart plan, with all restrictions expected to be lifted in the fall.
