On Friday, two new individuals with lab confirmed COVID-19 were announced for Island Health. The new cases include one returning international traveler with the other linked to a previously announced lab-confirmed COVID-19 case. This brings our total Island Health active cases to four people, all of whom are self-isolating at home. I want to thank our public health teams for their robust testing and contract tracing programs which allow us to catch new cases early, before they have the opportunity to spread significantly. These new cases remind us again of the importance to following the public health guidance provided by Dr. Bonnie Henry and Dr. Richard Stanwick. Our individual actions make a difference and we must continue to practice all the behaviours we learned through the pandemic.
