COVID-19 Update - June 4, 2020

Creston, BC – June 4, 2020: Today, Dr. Bonnie Henry presented updated modeling on the epidemiology of COVID-19, outlining how the virus has affected people in BC, following her last modelling presentation on May 4, 2020. The modelling presented suggests continued declines in transmission of COVID-19, resulting from ongoing physical distancing; however, if there is too much relaxation of physical distancing transmission may rebound. So stay safe, stay kind, and remember to keep your distance from others.
