A man in his 80s who lived at a North Vancouver nursing home died late Sunday, according to provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. The man had pre-existing health problems prior to contracting the coronavirus, Henry said.
The Lynn Valley Care Centre facility was identified as a COVID-19 hotspot three days ago.
"This is obviously a very sad day for all of us, but especially for the family and loved ones," said B.C. Health Minister Adrian Dix at a news conference in Victoria on Monday.
Henry said a female resident of the home in her 70s has also tested positive for the virus and is in stable condition.
