Provincial Health Officer, Doctor Bonnie Henry, says this absolutely reflective of people getting together over the holidays.

The island cases are among 509 new cases found provincewide, pushing B.C.'s total to 60,117 cases since the pandemic began.

To date, 69,746 people have received a COVID-19 vaccine in B.C.

The outbreak at Wingtat Game Bird Packers, a Surrey poultry plant where at least 30 workers tested positive for the coronavirus in December, has been declared over as well.

Also, Henry says there are now four cases of the United Kingdom variant in the province, and she says officials don't believe it has spread beyond those people.

"We do not know how this person got the South African variant", said Henry. The other three were linked to another traveller who is now on Vancouver Island.

The UK variant is not believed to have spread beyond those four individuals.

The person did not travel, nor do they have known contact with a traveller.

In a briefing with reporters today, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry disclosed that there have been four confirmed cases of the highly contagious United Kingdom variant.

The case was reported in the Vancouver area according to the province's public health information reported by Global News.

There are 74 people in intensive or critical care, a decline of two from the previous day.

Nine more people across the province have died from the virus, boosting BC's death toll to 1,019.

Meanwhile, the number of positive test results for COVID-19 in B.C. has nearly crossed the 60,000 threshold.

We have far more in common than what separates us when it comes to COVID-19.
