There were 15 new COVID-19 cases reported in Cranbrook and 16 new cases in Golden between April 25th and May 1st.

The BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) released its weekly data for local health areas, revealing that Fernie had 13 new cases, Windermere had 10, Kimberley had nine, and Creston had one.

Compared to last week’s data from the BCCDC between April 18th and 24th, Cranbrook’s saw three less new COVID-19 cases, Kimberley had an uptick of two new cases, Fernie saw the exact same increase in cases, Windermere added four, Creston saw a decrease of seven and Golden saw an uptick of one additional case.

There are currently no local vaccination data for the East Kootenay and specific communities, other than larger data encompassing all of Interior Health. Windermere is still hosting a community-specific vaccination clinic until Friday, May 7th. Those over the age of 30 can register to get AstraZeneca at six local Cranbrook pharmacies, although all are now adding to their waitlist until vaccine supply can be increased.
