The same day, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry reported no new health-care facility outbreaks, while four remained active.

"We are watching carefully what is happening in China, particularly in Beijing", Henry said.

Henry said there were also a number of states in the US where hospitalization rates were rising in a worrying way.

Henry said the B.C. Centre for Disease Control was researching a number of global cases where people singing together had led to deadly outbreaks.

BC could soon begin easing restrictions around travel within the province if the numbers and stats around provincial coronavirus cases continue to trend downward.

There were 11 cases of COVID-19 reported in B.C. between noon Monday and noon Tuesday.

While B.C. has seen success in curbing the spread of COVID-19, health officials say that British Columbians must continue to be vigilant.

A resident of a long-term care facility at a hospital in Langley, B.C., has tested positive for COVID-19. Contact tracing is underway.

Henry says the outbreak at the fast-food restaurant is an example of how reopening the economy comes with risks, and a rapid response is needed to mitigate those risks.

Earlier this month, Henry said she couldn't give an "exact date" for when Phase 3 would commence, noting that "we are moving slowly, and what we will be looking at, though, is how can we take the best advantage of what we have in the summer to do it safely".

Dix said some health authorities were now preparing for a second wave of COVID-19.
