20 new cases reported, and three more deaths

As of Tuesday morning, there are 228 people with active COVID-19 cases in Winneshiek County.

Twelve more people have died of the virus, raising B.C.'s death toll to 1,090. The data is published by the department as it comes in.

The province has now recorded a total of 61,912 coronavirus infections since the start of the pandemic and 1,090 fatalities.

Fraser Health also confirmed that outbreaks at Maple Ridge Seniors Village and Guildford Seniors Village have been declared over.

The number of active COVID-19 cases in Winneshiek County is lower today than yesterday. Any deaths since that, and possibly earlier deaths that have not been confirmed as COVID-related, have not been added to the total. These cases are deaths that are not initially identified as COVID-19 related, but are of "natural causes" within 30 days of a confirmed infection. The number of active cases rose just five from Monday's report.

The rolling seven-day average increased to 582 cases per day after the first week of January, but has been gradually decreasing since.

There weren't any new outbreaks to report, and the one at the Emerald at Elim Village in Surrey has ended.

Within the county, there have been 31 new cases in the Warren zip code since Tuesday, 11 in Pittsfield, nine in Sugar Grove, five in Sheffield, and four in Tidioute.
