Vancouver Coastal Health says Whistler continues to record a sustained reduction in COVID-19 transmission in Whistler compared to previous weeks.
From Feb. 8 to Feb. 15, VCH identified 56 new cases of COVID-19 in Whistler.
An additional six older cases were geographically identified as Whistler residents.
The majority of cases continue to be among young adults who reside in Whistler, with COVID-19 transmission occurring predominantly in household settings.
VCH advises Whistler residents and visitors to avoid social gatherings, to stay home while sick, to wash their hands regularly, and to maintain physical distance when in public.
Those who have previously contracted and recovered from COVID-19 are also advised to continue to adhere to all public health guidance.
VCH asks any Whistler residents who are experiencing COVID-19-like symptoms, to complete the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool and to access testing services, if required.
VCH continues to provide care and support to those who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the Whistler community.
“We remain grateful to Whistler community leaders, residents and local businesses for their ongoing support since the start of the pandemic,” VCH said.
