  • Province outlines stage 2 of the Restart Plan

British Columbia is moving to Step 2 of the Restart plan as of June 15. British Columbians will be encouraged to travel across the province.

Provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says the reopening is largely based on B.C. exceeding its minimum vaccine threshold markers, with more than 75 per cent of residents receiving their first shot.
 
She says health officials were looking to a 65 per cent vaccination rate by June 14 to move to the second step of the reopening plan. BC ban on travel within BC will be lifted tomorrow.
 
Province still asking people not to travel outside the province.

Movie theatres will open tomorrow. Indoor social gatherings remain as one household or 5 people. 

Premier John Horgan - "British Columbians are anxious about putting COVID behind us but there are also people anxious about re-opening.

Horgan - "We are on track to meeting all of our restart milestones."

Sports can now be played indoors. Up to 50 fans can go to outdoor sporting events. Youth sports teams (and adult teams) can travel for games across the province with the Step 2 starting tomorrow.

Outdoor gatherings of up to 50 people will be allowed starting tomorrow.

Banquet halls, theatres, movie theatres, restaurants can all host events of up to 50 people starting tomorrow. Indoor religious ceremonies can be 10% of capacity or 50 people (whichever is bigger.)

High intensity fitness can resume with COVID safety measures in place. Liquor sales can go until midnight for bars and restaurants.

BC will be moving away from COVID-19 safety plans to communicable disease safety plans. This change is expected to take place on July 1 (Step 3).

Premier John Horgan announced a four-step plan last month aiming to allow residents to attend live concerts, watch indoor sports events and take off their masks off by Sept. 7.
