Signs will also be constructed at the B.C. and Alberta border, reminding people to not travel unless it is essential.

At the April 19 press conference, Horgan warned of additional steps against travel into B.C. from other provinces and between health regions within the province.

There are now 441 people in hospital, an increase of 73 patients from last week, with 138 people in intensive care, an increase of 17 patients.

Out of 120,040 confirmed cases in the province, 108,919 have recovered. One of the weekend's deaths took place in Interior Health, raising the regional death toll to 122. Our condolences are with the family, friends, caregivers and communities of this child and with all the people who have passed away due to COVID-19.

"It's now become clear that the risk of very rare blood clots associated with vaccination (with AstraZeneca) is in the range of about four in a million", Henry said.

To date, 1,380,160 of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca-SII COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in B.C., 87,970 of which are second doses. Those between 55 and 65 can also receive their AztraZeneca vaccine at a local pharmacy. People 40 and older who reside in those communities will be able to get vaccinated there. "The tourism operator in that community will not book you", Horgan said. Anyone trying to book accommodations from outside of B.C. won't be able to do so for the next five weeks.

Current restrictions include a ban on indoor dining and fitness groups, as well as indoor social gatherings and events.

Premier John Horgan says the province's goal is to restrict people's ability to leave their health authority. There are 27 people in hospital, including 12 in critical care.
