British Columbia reported four new outbreaks at long-term care homes over the weekend, and there are now almost 20 outbreaks at long-term care, assisted living and acute care facilities in the province.

In Ontario, 86 long-term care facilities now have outbreaks and more than 1900 residents have died.

Nationally, about 80 per cent of COVID-19 related deaths have been in long-term care.
