Coronavirus: BC health officials provide New Year’s Eve COVID-19 update | LIVE

British Columbia health officials are scheduled to provide their last COVID-19 update of 2020 at 3 p.m. PT, Thursday.

On Wednesday, the province issued a new public health order banning the sale of alcohol after 8 p.m., in a bid to curb “risky behaviour” that could lead to increased transmission.

The move was met with anger from the restaurant industry, who say it was issued as a last-minute surprise and will cost the already struggling industry more money.

Newly-announced COVID-19 cases have dropped in recent days, with 485 reported Wednesday, though the number of tests the province has administered has fallen below half of where it was at its peak.
