"Dose 1 drop-in clinics are open at a number of locations around the province", said Dr. Bonnie Henry.

Broken down by health region, this equates to 51 new cases in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, 99 new cases in the Fraser Health region, five new cases in the Island Health region, 60 new cases in the Interior Health region, and 13 new cases in the Northern Health region.

Across B.C. less than 100 new cases were found each day over the weekend for a total of 229. Two hundred and fifty Manitobans are now hospitalized with COVID-19 in Manitoba and neighbouring provinces, including 57 ICU patients in Manitoba and 17 receiving intensive care in Ontario and Alberta.

Henry notes 77.3 per cent of all adults and 75.8 per cent of all British Columbians aged 12 or older have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine.

Data from the state health department's COVID-19 dashboard showed that the number of people hospitalized with the virus in southwestern Missouri had risen 72% from 154 at the beginning of the month to 265 on Friday.

Vaccinations continue apace, with second doses continuing to strongly outnumber first doses.

The current five-day COVID-19 test positivity rate is 8% provincially and 7.2% in Winnipeg, both down from Saturday's rates of 8.3% and 7.4% respectively.

"In particular, as the school year comes to a close, we encourage all eligible youth, those 12 and older, to get your first dose before the summer holidays begin".

"If you are planning a trip, ensure you are vaccinated before you go".

Manitoba has hit its lowest daily case count since April, with 93 new cases of COVID-19 and six deaths on Sunday.

While most of those who have died from the virus were elderly New Mexicans with underlying health conditions, the latest fatalities included a Lea County man in his 30s and a Bernalillo County man in his 40s, according to Department of Health data.
