As well, no new deaths were recorded, keeping the total at 174 since the pandemic broke out. No deaths from the virus have been recorded in Northern Health.

In a joint statement, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix urged British Columbians to maintain good practices as they head into the national holiday.

"Tomorrow, as we all celebrate Canada Day, we remind everyone to follow the rules for safe social interactions, limit your interactions and keep your bubbles small, maintain a safe distance from others and stay home if you are feeling ill," they said.

"While this will be a different Canada Day for all of us, there are many virtual celebrations being planned and other fun ways to safely connect with friends and family. By doing our part, we can continue to keep our curve flat and protect our communities and those we care for most."

Northern Health has been without an active case since June 22.
