Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Minister of Health Adrian Dix will update COVID-19 numbers in the province for first time since Friday, when 28 new cases were announced including a baby in a neo-natal intensive care unit in a Vancouver hospital.

Monday’s briefing is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m. from Victoria. It comes as more people are testing positive for COVID-19 in British Columbia.

In late June the province moved to a new stage of its pandemic recovery plan, which further lifted restrictions, but also brought with it a greater risk of the virus surging.

Meanwhile, Vancouver Coastal Health authorities are looking at how COVID-19 spread in the neo-natal intensive care unit at St. Paul’s Hospital, where the baby tested positive for the virus.
