The provincial health officer says British Columbia is at a critical time in the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dr. Bonnie Henry says the next two weeks mark a second incubation period for the disease as she urged people to follow public health advice because the number of cases haven't peaked yet.

The province says two more people have died and another 86 people have tested positive for COVID-19 since Saturday.

The province has a total 970 cases of the novel coronavirus.

British Columbia has had 19 deaths related to COVID-19.

Henry says there are also 13 long-term care homes or assisted-living facilities that have outbreaks in the province, all of them in the Vancouver and Fraser Valley areas.
