On a positive note, the outbreak at St. Paul’s Hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit has been declared over.

Just one long-term care facility and one acute-care facility currently have active outbreaks.

There are now 20 cases on Haida Gwaii and 31 cases connected to Fraser Valley Packers Inc. in Abbotsford.

That means 22 of the province’s new cases since Monday are connected to those two outbreaks.

“Public health teams continue to support these active outbreaks,” said a release from the Government of BC.

“Of note, there are no health concerns related to the consumption of fruit from Fraser Valley Packers Inc.”
