Indoor gatherings and backyard barbeques are driving transmission of COVID-19 in B.C.’s Interior, the regional health authority’s top doctor said on Thursday.
Dr. Albert de Villiers, Interior Health’s chief medical health officer, called the source of the spread locally “sporadic.”
“It’s kind of all over the place. We’ve had some with people not keeping to the rules, in smaller clusters in household or backyard barbeques. We have not seen outbreaks in restaurants, we haven’t seen big workplace outbreaks either. It’s really sporadic and all over the place,” de Villiers said.
