Cases in B.C. now total 16,560, while deaths remain at 272.

Elsewhere in Northeast Texas, Red River County's case count went up from 202 to 208, Morris County's from 237 to 240 and Titus County's from 1,614 to 1,630, according to the Texas Department of State Health Services.

They include seven new cases on Vancouver Island with the majority in the Fraser Health region, at 268.

Henry said Thursday's reported cases were based on 11,020 tests - making a test positive rate of 3.8 per cent, which is a rise over recent weeks.

While B.C. has not yet followed the lead of other jurisdictions in returning to the "lockdown" policies seen in March and April, Henry suggested such a change could be forthcoming if managing the increase proves too hard.

"This is important for our overall mental, social, physical, and economic wellbeing and a key goal in our COVID-19 response, to minimize the impact of this virus both on the health system, on us individually, but on our communities", she added.

The outbreak at Queen's Park Care Centre has been declared over, leaving those active at 28 long-term care and assisted living homes and two acute care units. The other two are in acute-care facilities.

Henry said the outbreak at Ecole de l'Anse-au-sable in Kelowna was over.

Henry, who has never attended an indoor spin class but has observed them, said that people on stationary bikes breathe heavily and perspire, while loud music blares over instructions being shouted.

Health officials are monitoring a total of 7,519 people because of exposures to known cases of COVID-19, the provincial health officer said. Check back for updates.
