B.C. health officials are set to provide a COVID-19 update on Tuesday.
Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry will address the media from Prince George, B.C., while Health Minister Adrian Dix will be in Vancouver.
Henry is expected to push residents in the Northern Health region to get vaccinated, as that area lags behind other parts of the province in terms of vaccinations.
The news conference comes a day after the province reported 229 cases of COVID-19 over the previous 72 hours along with three additional deaths. There were 94 cases from Friday to Saturday, while 90 cases were reported from Saturday to Sunday.
Forty-five cases were recorded from Sunday to Monday, the lowest single-day number since the BC Centre for Disease Control recorded 45 cases on Aug. 25, 2020.
