After nearly four months of dealing with a pandemic, Dr. Bonnie Henry is taking a much needed break.
The provincial health officer responded to a question, Thursday, saying she is taking a couple of days off from work for a minor trip.
“I am not going outside,” she said. “I am experiencing B.C. as we have suggested that others do as well.”

Dr. Henry informed reporters that health officials in B.C. will not hold the next in-person briefing until Tuesday.
She added that there will be others in her place if needed but she is still, “very much available.”
During her daily briefing, Dr. Henry said there were no new deaths related to COVID-19, but she announced 20 new cases. That’s the highest reported over the past two weeks.
