Vancouver (News 1130) – British Columbians are being reminded to keep their bubbles small as the number of Cavid-19s in the province continues to rise.
Although he is not considering the second wave, we are not, the provincial health official said. Bonnie Henry is reminding us to keep our bubbles small if we want to flatten the curve further in the coming weeks.
Whether or not it remains true determines how we maintain our social circles in a state of decline.
“So, if I’m familiar with it, there’s only one chance I’m in contact with (Cavid-19). But if I had two friends, my chances would increase logistically – I have potential contacts with six people, “Henry said Monday.” These are things we need to think about again now. “
I hear the key point today is that September marks the time when BCs need to change their behavior again as work and school PPL heads.
We need to get back to our social circles and focus on our bubbles again.

With September upon us, parents are now preparing their children to return to school. Again many are going back to work, some have returned to the office after a few months at home.
As we increased our social interaction, Henry said it was time to consider cutting others off.
“We have to stop doing other things, like going after or out of school activities and playing on a sports team on the weekends,” he said. “These are all personal sacrifices that we are going to make this fall individually.”
There are 1,100 active cases in the province of which 294 have been recorded over the weekend, with Henry calling for British Columbians to be brought back at risk, saying people should think not only of themselves but of those around them.
He said private gatherings, including janazas and parties, continue to be one of the main sources of the spread of the carnivirus.
“How we communicate in the community is really important. We know we have to go to work, we know we need to go to school, so when we have to balance these things, it depends on our own family, our own risk, ”Henry explained.
Private assemblies continue to carry COVID-19 cases as BC surpasses 1,100 active cases just in time to move in cold and wet weather – raising warnings about indoor gatherings. Henry says 50 ppl is the maximum, not the standard of NEWS1130

“We had a relative time in the summer, but we found that when we lived together in an environment where we were close, face to face, talking, laughing, celebrating, the environments where the virus passed very quickly. ”
Henry noted that the figure did not apply to all situations, as the province nominated the province as the highest number of people allowed in one assembly.
“If you live in a small house or an apartment, it can be a lot more,” he explained. “People are starting to think to me, ‘How can I keep myself, my family, my close ones safe?’ ’And that means pull back. Knowing we can’t have these big teams. “
Small space, low face
Depending on the location, Henry said there can be many times when two people can be too many.
Pointing to recent changes that limit the number of people who can be on a short-term lease or rent a boat at once, Henry asked people to follow these guidelines for some more “clear guidelines”.
“So, look at it,” he said. “We are looking for restaurants and bars with six tables, and we have asked people to respect it, because it is a number that is manageable, it has space among the people, it also protects the employees working there as the people who are coming. ”
While there are no magic numbers for protected contacts, Henry said that if there were people in your circles at greater risk, your number could be smaller – and in some cases.
