Masks not mandatory in BC from July 1 but still recommended - see details

29 Jun, 2021

BC is lifting the requirement to wear a mask in public places on July 1. Dr. Bonnie Henry says this is ‘a careful and gradual return. We are now ready your move on to the next step’. 






- Get Vaccinated

- Stay home if sick

- Respect Personal space

- Continue hygiene practices like with washing hands with soap and use of sanitizer.





The province will be recommending people wear masks in public indoor spaces if they are partially vaccinated or not vaccinated. No recommendation to wear a mask for those who are fully vaccinated.




On July 1, there will be a reopening of casinos, with reduced capacity and ~50% of gaming stations permitted to open.


On July 1 there will be a reopening of nightclubs, with up to 10 people seated at tables, no socializing between tables and no dancing.


BC is returning to normal hours on July 1 for liquor service at restaurants, bars and pubs with table limits to be determined by venue and no socializing between tables.


Dr. Bonnie Henry - "We will be welcoming people from other provinces', preferably vaccinated people."
