B.C. has surpassed 2,600 positive COVID-19 cases after the latest update from Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Minister of Health Adrian Dix this afternoon (June 2). 

Officials say four more cases have been discovered in the past 24 hours to bring the new provincial total to 2,601.

Northern Health has recorded zero new cases in the past day with the total remaining at 64. No patients are currently hospitalized throughout the authority.

Vancouver Coastal Health has recorded 904 cases while there have been 1,311 in Fraser Health, 127 in Island Health and 195 in the Interior Health region.

Dr. Henry said there are 2,229 recoveries since the virus hit the province, but 207 cases are still active, including 31 in hospital and eight in ICU.

There have also been no new deaths from COVID-19 in B.C. with the total remaining at 165. 

New COVID-19 outbreaks have been discovered in the past 24 hours at Abbotsford's New World Technologies and Delta''s Maersk Distribution Canada.

Henry described both of these outbreaks as being in offices. 

Henry said that outbreaks are declared over at North Vancouver's Amica Edgemont Village, Vancouver's Royal Arch Masonic Home, Maple Ridge's Chartwell Willow Retirement Community, and Chilliwack's Eden Care Centre. That means that no new cases have been discovered at those facilities in the past 28 days, or two incubation periods.

This leaves eight active outbreaks at seniors' care facilities, all of which are long-term care residences. Two of those homes are in Vancouver Coastal Health, while six are in the Fraser Health region. No new cases of COVID-19 have been discovered at any of those homes in the past 24 hours.
