The number of people in hospital with COVID-19 declined for the fourth straight week, while the number of patients in critical care has also dipped in the week since the province last released data on COVID-19.

Data from the B.C. Centre for Disease Control shows 306 people in hospital with COVID-19 as of Thursday, a decline of 7.5 per cent from the week before and down 25 per cent from 410 reported on Aug. 4.
