Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix have announced more cases of the novel coronavirus in B.C.

Six more people in B.C. have tested positive for COVID-19, including two residents at a long-term care home, provincial health officials have confirmed.

Two residents at the Lynn Valley Care Centre in North Vancouver are infected. The facility is now considered the site of an outbreak, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said on Saturday. The virus spread after a worker contracted the virus earlier this week.

Another pair were infected while aboard a previous cruise on the Grand Princess and are now back in the province. The other two new infections are related to travel from Iran.

The province is now advising all British Columbians to avoid travelling on cruise ships.
