Across the province, 6,132 active cases remain. 426 people have been hospitalized from the virus, and 150 people are being treated in the ICU.

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said more granular data will be made available to the public by Wednesday this week.

“You’ll be able to look at more granular detail mostly by community health service area. I say mostly because there are some smaller populations centres in the province, mostly rural ones, where we can only present by local health area because the community and parts of the community can be identifiable,” said Henry.

According to Henry, the data will include an interactive map that will show COVID-19 case and vaccine data by age and sex. School, workplace or racial COVID-19 data will not be included, however.
