There were 59 new COVID-19 cases in the Terrace area between Jan. 17 and Jan. 23, according to the latest data published by the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC).
The Terrace area, which includes Kitselas, Thornhill, and Kitsumkalum, continues to have one of the highest average daily rates per 100,000 people out of any jursidiction in B.C.
The Nass Valley also has a high rate per 100,000 people, with 9 new cases between Jan. 17 and Jan. 23. Those BCCDC figures for the Nass Valley may not match numbers self-reported by the Nisga’a Valley Health Authority (NVHA), due to differences in how the two organizations track cases.
