Service resumes at Waterfront Station after shutdown due to suspicious package | News – Daily Hive

Published

 on


Service at Vancouver’s Waterfront station resumed Saturday evening after a closure earlier in the afternoon because a suspicious package was found on a train.

Sgt. Clint Hampton with the Metro Vancouver Transit Police told Daily Hive that officers determined the package was “not a threat.”

There was no service on the Expo Line, Canada Line, or SeaBus between approximately 4:30 pm and 7 pm Saturday.

TransLink advised customers there may be gaps in service as SeaBuses and trains get back on their normal schedules.

During the service disruption, trains on the Expo Line were only running normally between Stadium-Chinatown Station and King George Station. Trains on the Canada Line were only running south of Olympic Village Station, with a shuttle train running between Olympic Village and VCC-Clark stations.

Initially, TransLink announced the Expo Line at Waterfront Station was closed. But shortly after, they announced other services at the station were affected as well.

The closure resulted in heavy delays for transit users.

There were no new deaths related to the coronavirus reported in Saskatchewan Sunday.

In a news release, the Ministry of Health revealed that the death toll in Saskatchewan from the virus stayed steady at 385.

There was more positive news, as recoveries slightly outweighed new cases. There were 141 new cases reported, along with 146 recoveries. Those numbers slightly dropped the active case total to 1,543.

The new cases reported are located in the far northwest (16), far north-central (one), far northeast (14), northwest (17), north-central (13), Saskatoon (38), central-west (two), central-east (eight), Regina (19), south-central (eight) and southeast (one) zones. One new case is pending residence information.

The locations for three previously reported cases were discovered to be the Regina (one), northwest (one) and north-central (one) areas.

There are 153 people in hospital across Saskatchewan. Of those, 19 are in intensive care in the Saskatoon (11), Regina (7) and northwest (one) regions.

Since last March, there have been 28,674 total infections and 26,719 recoveries.

The seven-day daily case average now stands at 146, or 11.9 cases per 100,000 people.

There were 2,285 tests processed Saturday, raising that total so far to 576,325.
