British Columbia health officials are urging residents to follow their latest orders to slow the spread of COVID-19 and relieve the pressure on the health-care system.

The province recorded 516 new cases of COVID-19 Friday, for a total of 25,474.

There are 7,122 active cases of COVID-19, with 227 people currently hospitalized.
