BC announces 20 COVID-19 cases for the first time in over a month

For the first time since June 3, BC has announced 20 new COVID-19 cases.

That brings the province's case total to 3,028.

Among those cases, 175 remain active, with 17 people in hospital with the virus and four of those in critical care.

There have been no coronavirus related deaths in the past 24-hours.

Officials had no new health-care or community outbreaks to announce.

However, the province continues to monitor several potential exposures in Vancouver, including the No5 Orange strip club and Belmont Hotel night club.

Officials are also looking into whether the rules for nightclubs are being followed or if they need changing.

According to health minister Adrian Dix, 61 long-term care facilities now have safety plans in place to allow some designated, non-essential visitors.

The province is still working on identifying a reliable antibody test to determine how many people have been infected and recovered without ever testing positive for COVID-19.
