“Dr. Henry and Minister Dicks and their team explained it to me again today; they have a lot more to say in their actual briefing tomorrow.”
Jగrgen also stressed Prohibition on unnecessary travel in BC “At least two weeks at least” will be in place.

“I know Dr. Henry and Minister Dix have more to say tomorrow; I will leave it to them to do so.”
