It’s not the news we want to hear on the COVID front.

Canada's chief public health officer says we are seeing a steady increase in the B-A-2 variant of the virus.

Dr. Theresa Tam says the rising numbers are totally expected because anytime we relax public health measures and increase in-person activities then cases are going to go up.

She also says the B-A-2 variant is more transmissible and that will significantly impact people who aren’t up to date with their COVID vaccinations.

Dr. Tam’s parting message at her briefing today was, Get your booster.
