Health officials in British Columbia are advising against all non essential travel outside of Canada including to the United States.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says anyone who chooses to travel outside of Canada will be required to stay away from work or school for 14 days upon their return.

She is also recommending that organizers cancel any events for 250 or more people.

Health Minister Adrian Dix says schools will remain open but officials will consult over the spring break to determine appropriate policies and procedures.

Henry and Dix made the announcement as the province recorded seven new cases of COVID-19, bringing the total in B.C. to 53.
