Fraser Health remains the hardest-hit region, although its total has plummeted in recent weeks.

Three are linked to the same traveller on Vancouver Island and the fourth is related to a returning traveller in Vancouver Coastal Health.

"There are no other contacts", Henry said.

Dr. Bonnie Henry reported that there are now four confirmed cases of the United Kingdom variant, three of which are linked to the same traveler on Vancouver Island.

It is unknown how the individual contracted the virus, as they have no known travel history.

"It is, of course, concerning that we don't know where this arose", Henry said during a live update.

Henry said that screening continues to occur, with random samples as well as additional screening on people who have travelled.

Henry said that while just under 70,000 people had been vaccinated in B.C., with most of the population to be immunized by the end of the year, the vaccines had not been yet been proven to prevent contracting COVID-19s.

"It's not focused in one area", she said. "We have a lot of considerations that need to go into this".

During this pandemic, our strength as a province has been all of us working together with a common goal - to do all we can to keep our loved ones, our communities and ourselves safe - and to do that with kindness and compassion, tolerance and understanding.

A total of 59,608 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 since the pandemic began, 52,605 of those people have recovered.

The seven-day moving average of daily new cases was 509.1 province-wide as of Tuesday, down significantly from a high of 779.4 on November 26, but still several times higher than it ever got during the pandemic's first wave.

There are 4,624 active cases of COVID-19 in the province.

That contrasted with 102 new cases in Vancouver Coastal Health, 115 in Interior Health, 45 in Northern Health, and 21 in Island Health.

As for today's numbers, Doctor Henry announced 536 new infections in BC today.

At the same time, two health-care outbreaks were declared over, including one at an assisted living facility in Duncan. The outbreaks at Langley Memorial Hospital long term care - Cedar Hill, Ts'i'ts'uwatul' Lelum and Veterans Memorial Lodge are over.
