Boundary down to lone new COVID-19 case

The Boundary recorded just a single new COVID-19 case on the latest round of figures provided by the BC Centre for Disease Control.

The agency says between May 29 and June 4, there was just one case in Kettle Valley, up from zero the week before, and none in Grand Forks, down from two.

In the West Kootenay, there was a combined total of 13 cases, down from 31 the week before.

Trail had the most new cases, with six, down from 13. That followed an outbreak at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital that was declared ended this week following 15 cases and one death.

Creston had four cases, up from two. After topping the region in new cases for most of the last six months, Nelson had just one case, down from six. Arrow Lakes also had only one, down from seven, which was partly accounted for by an outbreak at Slocan Community Health Centre in New Denver.

Castlegar also had a lone case (down from two), and Kootenay Lake zero (down from one).

The case counts are only those that are lab confirmed, not ones where people have self-tested.
