Two long-term care facilities and one acute-care facility are now dealing with active outbreaks.

There is also one new health-care facility outbreak at Dania Home in the Fraser Health region, the statement says.

There have now been a total of 3,641 confirmed cases and 195 deaths from COVID-19 in B.C.

The statement from Henry and Dix did not indicate how many cases were associated with the Dania Home outbreak or how the virus was introduced to the facility.

The staffer worked only in one contained unit, Fraser Health said in a news release, and is in self-isolation at home. However, public health teams are continuing to support the ongoing outbreaks on Haida Gwaii, and at Fraser Valley Packers Inc.

Twenty-four of the new cases are in the Fraser Health region, 12 of the in the Vancouver Coastal Health region, nine are in the Interior Health region, two are in the Northern Health Region, one is on Vancouver Island and two are people from out of country.

Henry and Dix say the long weekend is an opportunity to find the balance between making social connections with friends and family while staying safe. The assisted living, long-term care homes and seniors' rental buildings with ongoing COVID-19 outbreaks are.

Those precautions include keeping groups small, using "layers of protection" and ensuring there is enough space for people to maintain physical distance from each other, Henry and Dix said.

The guide comes after several community outbreaks in B.C. have been linked to "good times", or rather gatherings of people in their 20s to 40s who have contributed to the spread of the virus by attending house parties, visiting bars and restaurants and more.

Cases now total 3,641, with a recovery rate of 87 per cent.
