Get ready for Step 2 of the BC Restart Plan

Good afternoon,

I’m pleased to share that as of tomorrow, June 15, British Columbia (BC) will begin Step 2 of the BC Restart Plan. Thanks to the increase in vaccinations (more than 75% of adults in BC have now received their first shot) plus the decline in the number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, the province is ready to progress to the next step of the phased Restart Plan.

Step 2 Guidance

  • Indoor visitors of up to five people or one household;
  • The BC recreational travel non-essential travel ban will be lifted, however out-of-province non-essential travel advisory continues;
  • A maximum of 50 people can gather outdoors for personal gatherings;
  • A maximum of 50 people can attend indoor seated organized gatherings (e.g., movie theatres, live theatre, banquet halls) with safety plans in place;
  • A maximum of 50 spectators can attend outdoor sports;
  • liquor service at restaurants, bars, and pubs will be extended until midnight; and,
  • Indoor sports games (no spectators) and high-intensity fitness with safety plans can resume.

The following Public Health Officer (PHO) guidelines remain in place:

  • Masks are mandatory in indoor public spaces
  • Physical distancing
  • Stay home if you’re feeling sick

Read the full BC Restart plan. As a reminder, all BC residents 12+ are eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccination. We encourage you to register today.

Thank you for your continued support to keep the BCIT community safe.

Thank you,

Glen Magel
Director, Safety, Security and Emergency Management
