Two of the latest victims were from the Vancouver Coastal Health region, while the other two were from the Fraser Health and Northern Health regions.

"We've had a number of exposures in a number of school settings".

There are no more community outbreaks to report; however, Henry said community exposures continue to occur. So far, they have determined much of the spread of COVID-19 in Bureau County can be linked to events and gatherings where masking and social distancing was not observed. The total for the county is now 662, with 174 cases that are actively being monitored by the Health Department, 477 that have recovered, and a total of 11 deaths.

Georgia has reported 193 new cases of the coronavirus earlier today and announced the death of a 20th patient since the country confirmed its first case of the coronavirus at the end of February 2020. 813 people have fallen ill to COVID-19 in the health care system, 484 residents and 329 staff.
