Dr. Bonnie Henry announced Northern Health has recorded three new COVID-19 cases in the past 24 hours.
The last case before today diagnosed was on June 9. The authority went 37 consecutive days without any cases found.
B.C. has recorded 28 new cases in the past 24 hours, bringing the total to 3,198. t's the highest daily total in the province since May 7.
There are 1,032 recorded cases in Vancouver Coastal Health, 1,676 in Fraser Health, 136 in the Island Health Authority and 235 in Interior Health. There are 51 cases that involve people that live outside of Canada.
There have been no new deaths across the province which keeps the total at 189.
The three new cases in Northern Health are all in different communities, Dr. Henry said. At least two are related to travel, one of them from out of the province, she said.
There is one active case at the Site C dam project in Fort St. John.
A worker arrived from Alberta on July 13, and immediately self-isolated after receiving their test results from Alberta Health Services on July 15, BC Hydro said. Northern Health provided a second test and confirmed the worker was positive on July 16.
That case isn't being added to the numbers for Northern Health. The worker is from Alberta and the province is recording those numbers separately, a spokeperson said.
This is a developing story.
