Vancouver Coastal Health says it continues to record a further decline in COVID-19 transmission in Whistler compared to previous reporting periods.
From Feb. 22 to 28, VCH identified 18 new cases of COVID-19 in Whistler.
This accounts for eight fewer new cases recorded since the last reporting period.
There have been a total of 720 cases in Whistler since Jan. 1, 2021, of which 699 people have recovered.
However, the reported cases continue to be identified among young adults who live in the Whistler community.
The most common location for transmission continues to be in household settings.
VCH advises all Whistler residents and visitors to avoid social gatherings with those outside of their immediate bubbles, to stay home while sick, to wash their hands regularly, and to maintain physical distance when in public.
All Public Health guidelines should continue to be followed by those who have previously contracted and recovered from COVID-19.
VCH asks any Whistler residents or visitors who experience COVID-19-like symptoms to complete the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool and to access testing services in their community, if required.
VCH says it continues to provide care and support to those who have tested positive for COVID-19 in the Whistler community.
