There has been an uptick in COVID-19 cases on North Shore after a sharp decline of the past few weeks.
According to the latest weekly data released by the BCCDC today, there were 83 cases of COVID-19 on the North Shore, 10 in West Vancouver and 73 in North Vancouver.
The rise follows weeks of downward trend in cases.
The week before, from May 16 to May 22, the North Shore had recorded just 50 cases, of which 47 were recorded in North Vancouver and just three in West Vancouver.
The week before this, as many as 85 people were diagnosed with COVID-19 on North Shore.
The week before that, there were 98 cases, of which 28 were recorded in West Vancouver and 66 in North Vancouver.
Today, the BC Government reported that 71.1% of all adults in B.C. and 68% of those 12 and older have received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.
“With BC’s Restart plan progressing, this is a time of transition for all of us. We are slowly and cautiously moving forward through Step 1, and in the weeks ahead, activities that have been on hold will resume once again.”
“Many are excited about this transition, but there can also be fear and anxiety about what this may mean for you and your loved ones. We have all worked hard to stay safe and we want to keep our positive momentum going.
“We can progress at a pace that works for us – whether that is in step with the restart plan or perhaps being slower and more gradual in our individual approaches.”
