B.C. offers $500 monthly rental rebate, moratorium on evictions, rent freeze

LETTER: Please tell us how many cases

Another resident of the Lynn Valley Care Centre has died from the coronavirus, said Henry, but no new cases have been identifed there.

On Monday, Henry also confirmed a death related to the virus at the facility, though she said on Wednesday none of the residents and health-care workers at Haro Park with known COVID-19 cases were hospitalized - all were either staying home or remaining at the facility.

Unfortunately, there has been another death in B.C., too.

Regarding maintaining physical distance, Henry said the provincial ban on gatherings of more than 50 people is not a scientific limit, but a practical one.

"I mean it does draw attention again to the fragility of our long term care facilities", Henry said.

"We don't want people to think they might lose that home as a result of this pandemic", he said today.

Two additional residential care homes have confirmed cases. "I feel a little bit more secure with a provincewide rental freeze", she said, since City of Vancouver rules don't apply to where she and her family live at UBC.

"We are actively looking at getting as much as we can", said Henry, who also mentioned using alternate supplies, but did not elaborate.

For years, USA officials would say only that Levinson was working independently on a private investigation. The case is another irritant in the already hostile relationship between Washington and Tehran.

In a Facebook post, Meghan Desnoyer said there was a "critical shortage of personal protective equipment - masks, gowns, face shields, and sanitizers" and appealed for donations of such items. "We are putting in place measures now to try and control that and be more efficient and effective in how we use PPE".

"In the first reporting period through March 23, 2020, we had 67 new cases, for a total of 539 cases in British Columbia".

Vancouver Coastal Health and Fraser Health make up almost 85 percent of all the cases in the province, while Island Health has reported 44 cases.

That includes for celebrations and ceremonies, which Henry said are important to acknowledge, but should be acknowledged online rather than in person.

The B.C. Government is issuing rental relief funding directly to landlords, halting evictions and freezing rent increases across the province in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis.

"In the last 24 hours, we have had 78 new cases, for a total of 617 cases in British Columbia".

When outside the home, keep two metres away from other people. On Wednesday, Henry repeated the province's testing strategy, which is to focus on "where it makes the most difference in protecting the health-care system".

"The fewer people who access the program, the more opportunity we have to expand it going forward", said Horgan, noting there are about 500,000 renters in B.C. Ottawa said Wednesday that it would provide workers affected by COVID-19 with $2,000 monthly for up to four months.
