Fraser Health confirms coronavirus case Dania Home in Burnaby

There are now three health-care facilities contending with active outbreaks.

The province also recorded one new death, in the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, bringing the total in B.C.to 195. There have been 144 in Island Health, 369 in the Interior Health region, 88 in Northern Health and 63 cases in people who reside outside of Canada. Five people are hospitalized, with two in intensive care. Of the 50 new cases, five cases are epidemiologically-linked, meaning people who were never tested but were presumed to have COVID-19 because they developed symptoms and were close contacts of a laboratory-confirmed case.

Henry and Dix announced one new outbreak at Dania Home in the Fraser Health region. The individual is now in self-isolation at home, while a rapid response team is on-site and communicating with residents and families. Henry and Dix said health teams continue to support the active outbreaks on Haida Gwaii and at Fraser Valley Packers Inc. Community exposures continue to be seen across the province, for a list of community exposures events you can visit the government's website.

It's the second time in as many weeks that the number of new cases has topped 50, while the daily average has hovered around 30 in the weeks since B.C. entered Phase 3 of its reopening plan. Cleaning and infection control is being enhanced, and residents, families, and staff are being notified.

Numerous new cases have also involved younger people, in their 20s to 40s.

To that end, the province has released a new "Good Times Guide", from Henry, intended as a "playbook" to help British Columbians figure out how to "spread fun - not COVID-19".
