No new deaths were reported which kept the running total at 195.

In a joint statement, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and Health Minister Adrian Dix highlighted the services available to those having trouble coping with the stress and anxiety that has accompanied the pandemic.

They include the Kids Help Phone at 1-800-668-6868 and Kidshelpphone.ca and VictimLinkBC at 1-800-563-0808.

"Younger people, in particular, may not fully understand why many of the activities they normally enjoy are no longer available, look different and require us to interact with each other in new ways," they said.

"We remind people to take the time to check in with your friends, family and neighbours, young and old, to provide a mental health boost and to ensure they have the support we all need - especially for those who may be self-isolating."
