February has been a monumental month with increased COVID-19 border restrictions and the implementation of the mandatory hotel quarantine for all travelers coming from outside of Canada.

The latest B.C. Centre for Disease Control’s map reflects cases recorded during the week of February 21 – 27, 2021. It appears that while cases in the Interior health and Northern health have decreased, the situation in Vancouver Coastal health has remained stable, and Fraser Health has seen a slight uptake.

Compare it to the last update on COVID-19 hot spots to see for yourselves.

The number beside each city name represents the number of cases.

  • Abbotsford had recorded 5,065 cases overall.
  • Delta had recorded 2,723 cases overall.
  • Burnaby has recorded significantly more cases than Delta, overall, with 4,535.
