British Columbia has 11 new cases of COVID-19, all of them in the Vancouver area, bringing the total in the province to 64.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says the new cases also involve an ``additional cluster'' that was reported earlier today at the Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver.

Three administrative workers at the hospital have tested positive for COVID-19.

Vancouver Coastal Health says they are in self-isolation at home and are recovering.

Henry says they have not worked in the hospital's clinical areas.

There is also another case related to the Lynn Valley Care Centre in North Vancouver, where the other cluster is located in the province.

Henry says the other new cases are linked to travel to Iran, Egypt, the Philippines and Mexico. She says two people are now hospitalized, six have recovered and the rest are in isolation at home.
