We are asking for everyone's help to bend our curve back down.\n\n\nDr. Bonnie Henry \n\n\nMeanwhile, Dr. Deena Hinshaw delivered a public address for Alberta, announcing 366 new cases. \nWhile the daily cases are fewer in Alberta, the province currently has far more people in the hospital with COVID-19; 626, said Dr. Hinshaw. \n"Our greatest source of transmission comes from when we spend time with those outside of our household, work or school bubble. That is why staying small and equally important, avoiding all unnecessary travel, is what we need to do right now," said Dr. Henry in the press release. \nShe said that we need to see fewer COVID-19 cases in British Columbia. In fact, she wants to see numbers pushed down "as low as we can go."\n\n"Our path to get there is just as clear - fewer faces and fewer places," said Henry. \nDr. Hinshaw echoed these sentiments, saying that we need to keep doing our part and following restrictions for "a little while longer."
