Chief provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and health minister Adrian Dix provide an update on the province's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
British Columbia reported five new deaths from COVID-19 on Tuesday, as the number of cases in the province topped 1,000.
Henry offered good news on Tuesday, however, saying that more than 50 per cent - or 507 people - had recovered from the virus leaving only 482 active cases. She did caution that the province likely wouldn't return to normal life until "at least the summer."
Provincial officials are expected to provide an update Wednesday.
