    The number of patients in hospital is unchanged at 18, with four of them in intensive care.

    The province’s COVID-19 death toll remains at 174.

    There have been no new outbreaks at health-care facilities and no new community outbreaks.

    An outbreak at Valhaven Home in the Fraser Health region has been declared over. There are now active outbreaks at four long-term care or assisted-living facilities and one acute care facility.

    Earlier Tuesday, Henry and Dix released details on reopening long-term care facilities to visitors.

    Each long-term care resident can designate one visitor per designated area per facility, said Henry. That could be expanded to more people, but she said she wants to start slowly.

    Health Ministry data shows of the 174 COVID-19 deaths in B.C., 122 were people in long-term care, assisted living facilities or hospitals.
