British Columbia has recorded 20 new COVID-19 cases in a day for the first time since June 3.

However, there were no new deaths associated with the coronavirus on Thursday, said provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry.

With new cases having largely plateaued in the province, Henry warned the public about getting complacent — noting recent exposure events at a Vancouver nightclub and two strip clubs. The province is reviewing its guidelines for those environments.

Active outbreaks remain at just two long-term care or assisted living facilities, the Holy Family Hospital in Vancouver and the Maple Hill Long-Term Care Centre in Langley.
