Make sure they’re the one suggests Dr. Henry on dating during COVID-19

For the first time during the COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Bonnie Henry was asked about how British Columbians should go about exploring romantic interests.

“We’re social people and we need that,” said Dr. Henry during her daily press conference.

“If you’re going to pick somebody and pull them into your small circle, make sure they're the only one in that circle and you're the only one in their's as well.”

Being a respiratory virus that spreads through droplets, COVID-19 is easily transmitted through kissing, making romantic experiences slightly more challenging.

"I think many people have adapted to online and to having encounters online that can be quite helpful in that regard,” explained Dr. Henry.

"One person in my life remarked that because we can't go to bars and clubs, things like having a picnic in the park is a new romantic thing people are doing and that's okay too."

People are strongly cautioned that if they're feeling unwell at all before going on a date it's very important to simply put it off for another day.

On Tuesday, on BC announced only seven new COVID-19 cases, the lowest daily case figure since mid-March.
