BC is lifting many of the COVID-19 restrictions that have been in place for months, so long as people continue to wear masks and prove they are fully vaccinated.
At midnight on Wednesday, Feb. 16, many of the restrictions will be lifted for gatherings, events and restaurants.
What's staying the same?
The changes have been made in response to high vaccination rates by the general public and as COVID-19 hospitalizations continue to fall.
Get your Booster Shot
If you are not yet fully vaccinated (two shots), please book an appointment today! It can decrease your risk of severe disease and hospitalization due to COVID-19. If you are fully vaccinated and your second shot was over six months ago, be sure to get your booster. Pregnant people are at higher risk due to COVID-19 and are eligible for a booster shot eight weeks after their second dose. The efficacy of all vaccines fades over time, which is why boosters are needed for optimal protection.
