The latest weekly update by British Columbia Centre for Disease Control shows an increase in the number cases in the Howe Sound health region.
From August 29 to September 4, there were 34 new cases reported in the Howe Sound region.
Last week, 25 COVID-19 cases were reported in the region, while 16 cases were reported in the week before.
Howe Sound health region comprises Squamish, Britannia Beach, Whistler, and Pemberton and its rural areas.
Cases are mapped by location of residence, though cases with unknown residence and out of province are not mapped, BCCDC says.
BCCDC also cautions that the number of reported cases might not represent the location of the exposure, for example, the people who acquired the disease while travelling or working elsewhere.
The Province also continues to see breakthrough cases in fully vaccinated people. From August 31 to September 6, as many as 4,691 new cases were reported in the province, of which 1,041 were those who were fully vaccinated.
In the past two weeks, 33 fully vaccinated people and 16 partially vaccinated were hospitalized following COVID-19 infection.
