Interior Health reported 81 new cases of COVID-19 today.
It brings the total number of cases since the pandemic began to 2,062, with 633 of them currently active.
Thankfully, the region's death toll remains at four.
Eighteen people are in hospital, up from 15 at the start of the week, and four of them are in the intensive care unit.
Another staff member at Mountainview Village long-term care has tested positive for COVID-19.
This brings the total to four positive cases of COVID-19 associated with this outbreak.
"The smaller number of new cases this week is encouraging – a drop off like this is what we want to see after we have completed our initial investigation and have connected with those we have identified as close contacts to original cases," said medical health officer Dr. Karin Goodison.
"However, we do anticipate new cases for a week or two after a cluster is declared, so nobody should be letting down their guard in Revelstoke right now. Interior Health continues to see a significant number of new cases every day and these are impacting rural communities as well as our larger centres."
