The province says 26 more people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 over the past three days.

Since Jan. 27, when B.C. recorded its first confirmed case of COVID-19, there have been 615 positive tests - 386 residents and 229 staff - at long-term care facilities.

There remain 153 active cases of the virus in B.C., with 18 of those patients in hospital, including five in critical or intensive care.

Brandi's Exotic Show Lounge has announced that it has passed a health inspection and will be reopening after closing due to a COVID-19 outbreak.

No new deaths were reported by the province. "So that it makes it easier for us to know who is there and who was potentially exposed, so that we can protect people", she said.

Over the weekend, Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) officials said that they are notifying people who've recently visited Brandi's Exotic Show Lounge about the potential for exposure that took place between the hours of 9 pm and 3 am on the evenings of June 21st, 22nd, 23rd, and 24th (including midnight to 3 am on the 25th). "We are at a point now where people are in the incubation period [and] may start showing symptoms of this virus". "We can't afford to have exceptions or half measures", she said.

"Very early on in this pandemic, we learned that our seniors and elders were most at risk of serious illness and death from COVID-19".

The provincial health officer said as businesses reopen, managers must remember they are responsible for keeping employees and patrons safe and could be held responsible for failing to do so. Henry said British Columbians have worked hard to keep the total number of cases low, and must continue to do so.
