COVID-19: B.C. announces new travel restrictions, lowers age eligibility for AstraZeneca vaccine

At a news conference in Victoria, British Columbia Premier John Horgan provides an update on his government's response to the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease) pandemic. He announces that the province will bring in an order on April 23 to prohibit people from non-essential travel outside their local health authorities, with police checkpoints in place to enforce the order. B.C. will also limit provincial travel by working with the tourism sector to reject bookings from people travelling outside their local areas. B.C. Ferries will also stop accepting bookings for recreational vehicles. The provincial government will be putting up signs along the B.C.-Alberta border to discourage non-essential interprovincial travel, but there are currently no plans for checkpoints.

Dr. Bonnie Henry, British Columbia’s provincial health officer, and B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix also take part in the briefing and announce the age of eligibility for the AstraZeneca vaccine is being lowered to 40. (April 19, 2021)

Coronavirus: BC health officials report three days of COVID-19 numbers on Monday | FULL

Forty-six people have died of COVID-19 over the past three days, the province reported Monday.

B.C. health officials also reported 2,077 new cases of COVID-19 over the past 72 hours as well as 277 historical cases and 10 epi-linked cases.

There were 750 cases and 15 deaths from Friday to Saturday while 731 cases and 17 deaths were reported from Saturday to Sunday, and 596 cases and 14 deaths from Sunday to Monday.

The province also reported 277 historical cases due to a problem with lab reporting last week in the Fraser Health region.

The 2,364 cases bring the grand total of cases in the province to 33,238, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said Monday.

The provincial COVID-19 death toll stands at 441.

Thirty-five of the deaths over the past 72 hours were in the Fraser Health region and 11 were in Vancouver Coastal Health.

These people have faces, have names, have stories, have families, Henry said.

This tragedy is all of our tragedy and we all mourn their loss. If you are thinking it may be OK to bend the rules, please remember that this virus takes lives and it is the lives of those closest to us that are most at risk when we take risks.

Coronavirus: BC imposes new regional restrictions and ban on gatherings amid cases surge | FULL

British Columbia's provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced on Saturday the province's first region-specific order regarding banning some social gatherings and indoor activities as cases surge in the Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health regions.

Effective 10:00 pm Saturday, residents are banned from visiting each others’ private homes for two weeks. Weddings and funerals are permitted, but only with immediate family members.

Under the new order, travel for sport is also banned in or out of the region.

Indoor group physical activities such as spin classes, yoga and group fitness are also banned until they have updated COVID-19 safety plans approved by their regional medical health officer.

The order will be in place for two weeks, starting Saturday, and ending Nov. 23 at 12:00 pm.

The order came as Henry announced another 567 new cases of the virus, the second-highest the province has ever recorded in a single day.
