Confirmed cases have increased in BC this week. Confirmed cases in the Interior region and, more specifically the Kootenay Boundary Health Service Delivery Area remain low. Even though our numbers remain low, it’s important to not become complacent.
Remember the basics. Keep your group small, wash your hands, carry a mask just in case you need it and if you feel sick stay home.
According to the BC Centre for Disease Control (CDC), new case counts are generally increasing in the Interior in the past few weeks. That being said, we are not experiencing a peak similar to July.
A total of 31 new cases were reported in the Interior Health region over the course of the last week compared to 27 the previous week.
