Weekly COVID-19 case counts for the Central Okanagan continue to show a downward trend.
Feb. 14 to 20 included the Family Day long weekend but throughout that week, BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) data shows just 36 cases of COVID-19 in Central Okanagan, fewer than five cases per 100,000 people.
This case count is lower than the week of Feb. 7-13, where Interior Health (IH) reported 69 cases in Central Okanagan.
To the north, BCCDC data show nine cases in Vernon, none in Armstrong and Enderby, and eight in Salmon Arm. Last week, Vernon recorded 11 cases, one in Armstrong and 14 in Salmon Arm.
Data shows that Penticton recorded three new cases throughout the week, compared to just one last week. Summerland and Princeton both recorded one case. The South Okanagan area recorded ten, one in Kettle Valley and three in Grand Forks.
Merritt has 12 cases and Kamloops has 78, both of which are fewer than the week prior. Last week, Merritt saw 26 cases and Kamloops had 116.
