Saturday was "the first day in some time" that the province did not have any new cases to report amongst residents of long-term care facilities, noted Henry.
There are 303 active cases in B.C.
There are now 39 people receiving acute care in hospital.
Overall, 10 new cases were confirmed in British Columbia for a total of 2,517.
"Outbreaks tell us that the virus is still out there in the community", the provincial health officer said.
"The discrepancy between new cases and total cases with the Interior Health and Island Health regions reported today are a data consolidation to reflect COVID-19 cases based on where individuals reside, even if they were not in the health authority during their illness", reads a statement from Dr. Henry.
Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced 12 new COVID-19 cases on Thursday, with 307 cases being considered as active.
There have now been 2,517 people who have tested positive for the virus in B.C., and 157 people have died.
"We need to remember and these outbreaks remind us that gatherings of any kind increase the risk of transmission", Dr. Henry said. "This one was caught relatively early", said Henry, adding that while the plant was not ordered to close, it will be closed over the weekend during which proper protective procedures will be implemented.
"We do know that people move", she said. "Our public health surveillance needs to and will continue to quickly identify new cases and find those who they have been in contact with". "The faster we can identify new cases, the faster we can respond to prevent spread", she said.
"This is our transition phase". While B.C.'s restaurants and pubs have started to reopen, there is not yet any clear timeline in B.C. for when nightclubs will be able to reopen. Since physical distancing measures were introduced, the average number of contacts came down from between six and eight, to three. Both were long-term care residents in the Fraser Health region. Already, the province has recruited medical students, retired nurses and doctors, and set up a nurses hotline.
Dix and Henry also placed restrictions on the number vehicles allowed at drive-in movies, which appear poised for a comeback in Metro Vancouver due to social distancing regulations. "Let's keep going, together".
"That's an area that I think we need to beef up - we'll be speaking with our federal counterparts about how to do that".
There are now 2,507 cases of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in B.C., after health officials announced 18 new cases Friday.
