BC's Worst COVID-19 Hot Spot Is Being Asked To Only See The People They Live With
Earlier this week, Dr. Bonnie Henry addressed the public with a B.C. COVID-19 update. During the address, she announced that gatherings inside private homes will now be limited to your household members and an additional "safe six."
Henry also made it clear that Halloween parties shouldn't be on the agenda for this year.
Meanwhile, in the province's region that's been hit the hardest with COVID-19, Dr. Elizabeth Brodkin, the Fraser Health Authority's interim chief medical health officer, is asking that gatherings be limited to only household members, as reported by CBC News.

Cases in the Fraser Health Region
The single region accounts for well over half of British Columbia's 2,344 cases.
To put that in perspective, much larger regions like Northern B.C. have only 406 cases.
Dr. Brodkin told CBC that things like having your mom over for a cup of coffee are acceptable.
But, she says gatherings and celebrations are not doing the region any favours.
"The more these households come together and combine, the easier it is for this virus to spread."
