The province says 26 more people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 over the past three days.
There are now four active outbreaks at B.C. long-term and acute care facilities, while 36 others have been declared over.
Health officials have been watching the case count closely, and will continue to do so, as the province has moved into Phase 3 of its restart plan, which allows for hotels and resorts to reopen for "respectful travel" within B.C. A total of 18 people in British Columbia are now in hospital with the virus, and of those, five are in intensive care.
Of those, 979 were found in the Vancouver Coastal Health region and 1,529 were located in the Fraser Health region. As long as COVID-19 is around, everyone remains at risk of potential infection said Henry.
"We have not yet seen transmission from this event, but it's very possible".
The provincial health officer said as businesses reopen, managers must remember they are responsible for keeping employees and patrons safe and could be held responsible for failing to do so.
"We've had occasion in the past week where people have arrived with symptoms and tested positive for COVID-19", Henry added. "We are at a point now where people are in the incubation period [and] may start showing symptoms of this virus".
On Friday, both Air Canada and WestJet announced the removal of seat distancing protocols on domestic flights starting July 1.
The airlines announced Friday that they would use health recommendations from the UN's aviation agency and the International Air Transport Association.
Dix, who also wants to discuss the policy change with his provincial counterparts, says there can't just be a business argument for the change. Of those, 2,577 patients have fully recovered, or about 89 per cent.
