Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has ordered all night clubs and banquet halls to close effective immediately.

Dr. Henry also says alcohol can no longer be served at bars and restaurants after 10 pm and they must close by 11 pm unless serving meals.

She says the additional restrictions are being put in place because the venues are a significant source of risk of spreading COVID-19.

Dr. Henry also says people need to cut down on their social interactions to stay safe now that they're heading back to work and schools are reopening.

She made the comment after reporting BC had 429 new cases of COVID-19 over the past four days and two new deaths, both residents of long-term care homes.
