The last time Dr. Bonnie Henry and Minister Dix unveiled modelling data was on May 4 – two days before the B.C. government announced its COVID-19 Restart Plan. It was during this presentation that they suggested an ease of restrictions.

Since that time, B.C. has entered Phase Two of the Restart Plan, meaning more businesses, public spaces, and facets of the economy have started reopening.

The curve has generally flattened since Phase Two kicked off on May 19, however, the daily numbers released on Wednesday saw 22 new confirmed COVID-19 cases in the province. That marks the highest uptick in a 24-hour period since early May.

None of the new cases are in Island Health, where the total number of cases since the pandemic began remains at 127. Of those, 121 have recovered.
