Health officials in B.C. are expected to be back at it Monday.
Dr. Bonnie Henry, the provincial health officer, and Adrian Dix, minister of health, will be holding a live COVID-19 update beginning at 3 p.m.
The press conference will be streamed live on both CHEK’s Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Health officials have not provided an update on COVID-19 in B.C. since Friday (Nov. 27), when they announced a single-day record of 911 new cases, including 21 cases in Island Health.
As a result, today’s update will cover three reporting periods, Friday-Saturday, Saturday-Sunday, and Sunday-Monday.
Over the weekend, Island Health declared an outbreak at Veterans Memorial Lodge long-term care home in Saanich after one staff member tested positive for COVID-19.
Island Health has said the infected staff member is now isolating at home and that the outbreak is limited to a single unit within the facility.
