The province now has 2,051 active cases.

There is a data discrepancy between Island Health and the province, based on the timing of COVID-19 results.

Gustafson said public health teams in B.C. normally manage communicable diseases so well that we rarely hear about them, and she is optimistic COVID-19 will soon be in that group. Of the active cases, 203 individuals are now hospitalized, 57 of whom are in intensive care. But there are other criteria as well, including declining transmission and hospitalizations.

"It is very encouraging to see a steady increase in the number of people in our province who are protected with a COVID-19 vaccine", provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix said in a joint written statement.

In total, 3,635,795 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna and AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in B.C., 314,246 of which are second doses.

The lowest number of cases and case rate fell in the same area - the Clark County portion of the 98674 ZIP code, which includes parts of Woodland and a thin strip of the county along the Cowlitz County line.

If you're not sure if you're registered, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said there is "no problem" with registering a couple of times.

A total of 141,879 people are considered fully recovered from COVID-19, or 97 per cent of all recorded cases.
