As of the previous update on Thursday, there had been 1,463 deaths province-wide. Six patients at Lawrence's hospital had COVID-19 on Monday, four more than Thursday. But the number of cases of the P.1 variant continues to rise, with a total of 737 now confirmed.

Monday's update was delivered in the form of a written statement from provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix, who urged the public to follow their guidelines and protect each other to the best of their abilities. There are 588 active cases of COVID-19 variants, or seven per cent of all active cases.

"Let's be clear, there's a lot of people in hospital, a lot of people in critical care", Dix said.

"I think there's some confusion in people's minds". As of last week, officials have cancelled indoor dining, in-person worship and group fitness classes.

No one from the restaurants could immediately be reached for comment.

Any residents with questions about COVID-19 or the vaccine interest form may call Douglas County's help line at 785-864-9000.

When the Get Vaccinated system opens, people born in 1950 or earlier, Indigenous people who are 18 and older, and those who have certain medical conditions will be eligible to register.

He also acknowledged that a higher proportion of younger people are becoming ill from the disease.

"We have worked diligently and tirelessly to get this online registration, booking and tracking system ready for British Columbians", Dr. Call centres in each health authority were initially overwhelmed, and Fraser Health was the only one with an online platform. We have seen too many cases of people travelling outside their health authority region and not using their layers of protection, leading to outbreaks and clusters in their home community. That program is expected to expand to other regions of the province over the next few days.

The Province will be moving to Phase 3 of the COVID-19 Immunization Plan tomorrow (Tuesday).

To date, almost 770,000 eligible British Columbians - or one in six - have received their first dose of vaccine, and more than 87,000 have received their second dose.

That total includes 806,118 first doses - enough to protect almost 16 per cent of the province's population - and 87,472 second doses.
