So far, the Interior Health region has reported 201 total cases.

As Phase 3 of the BC Restart Plan is underway, more people are likely to travel in and out of the province.

“Any Traveller from outside of British Columbia needs to understand that we have established rules for safe social interactions here,” said Dr. Henry. “We expect everybody who comes here to adhere to those rules as well. We are calling those our travel manners.”

Henry said that those rules include keeping gatherings small, maintaining a safe distance, wearing a mask where physical distancing cannot be upheld, staying away from others and if any symptoms of COVID-19 arise, self isolate immediately and call 811 and arrange for testing.
