There are 5,657 active cases in the province and nearly 39 per cent of those are in the Interior Health region, where tougher restrictions were put in place this month.

The province says people who were not fully vaccinated accounted for 82 per cent of the infections and nearly 86 per cent of hospitalizations from Aug. 12 to 25.
