There's more evidence that COVID-19 is a stubborn bug to beat.

Two new outbreaks have been flagged in British Columbia.

One is at a neo-natal intensive care unit in Vancouver, and there's another case detected at a massive hydroelectric project.

Vancouver Coastal Health has issued a notice about the outbreak at the neo-natal unit at St. Paul's hospital in Vancouver's downtown.

Several patients and their families have been traced as potential contacts and are in isolation.

BC Hydro says a worker who arrived from Alberta on Monday to the Site C work camp in Fort St. John has tested positive and is in isolation.
