British Columbia once again reported a single-day record for new COVID-19 cases Thursday, as students across the province returned to school under new safety protocols. The province reported 139 new COVID-19 cases, while the death toll remained unchanged at 213, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said. With classes in session, Henry said the next several weeks will be critical in controlling the spread of the virus, and that people need to renew their commitment to handwashing and staying home if they feel ill. “It’s going to be a learning experience. Today was day one for many children, and we will all be learning over the next few weeks, and will be doing this together,” she said. Health Minister Adrian Dix reiterated the same message, calling for the public to “stick to six” people when interacting. “Remember to choose from the same group of people,” he added.
