  • B.C. reports no COVID-19 deaths, 11 new cases as restart enters second week

British Columbia didn't report any new deaths from COVID-19 on Tuesday, but there have been 11 additional cases of the virus.

A total of 2,542 people in B.C. have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and 2,122 have recovered.

There have been 161 deaths.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry urged people to continue their approaches to protecting themselves from COVID-19 as B.C. enters the second week of its economic restart plan and more activities resume.

Many B.C. businesses, including restaurants, hair salons and dentists' offices, started reopening last week.

Henry says B.C. may see an increase in the numbers of COVID-19 cases as the province continues to make the transition to reopen more activities.

She says the restart phase may cause anxiety and frustration among people but she's urging calm.
