Restrictions on the number of people using vacation rental properties is the next order being made by British Columbia's provincial health officer to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Doctor Bonnie Henry says the onus will be on owner-operators to ensure they meet local bylaws and public-health requirements.

She is expected to provide details in the coming days but says the limite on the number of people will be based on the size of a space, including houseboats.

Dr. Henry says the measure is necessary after large numbers of young people at parties in Kelowna led to a recent spread of the virus to other parts of BC.

She reported 30 new cases as well as one death, for a total of 190 fatalities.

Dr. Bonnie Henry says her earlier order limiting six people to tables at restaurants could be a guide for similar gatherings elsewhere but people should only socialize with those they know.
