COVID-19 Update - July 6, 2021

Updated Public Order: Gatherings and Events and Food & Liquor Serving Premises
Last week, the provincial government moved ahead with reducing restrictions now that nearly 80% of adults in BC have had at least one dose of vaccine and COVID-19 case counts continue to decline. We do, however, encourage everyone to respect others’ comfort levels as we take another step toward putting this pandemic behind us. As of July 1, COVID Safety Plans are no longer a requirement, and the vast majority of public health orders replaced by new guidelines around health and safety provided by WorkSafeBC. Below you will also find copies of the updated health orders for gatherings and events as well as food and liquor serving premises for your reference.
New Guidance for Fully Vaccinated Canadians from Public Health Agency of Canada
The Public Health Agency of Canada released new guidance for what people can do once they are fully vaccinated. You still need to follow local public health advice in public settings (e.g. workplaces, public transit). Their advice considers community risk levels. The advice given is advice is based on the current state and will be updated as vaccination rates continue to increase and cases decrease.
