COVID-19 Update - November 9, 2021
BC Extends Indoor Mask Mandate
British Columbia’s provincial health officer has extended the mask mandate that requires masks be worn in all indoor public spaces throughout BC. The previous order, which was set to expire on Oct. 31, 2021, has been extended indefinitely to continue to slow the transmission of COVID-19.
Masks are required in all public indoor settings for all people five and older, regardless of vaccination status.
Single-Serve Liquor A Go with Takeout, Delivery
Grabbing a packaged single glass of wine or draft beer with takeout, or having it delivered with a meal when ordering in, is now possible as BC opens another revenue-generating option for licensed restaurants and pubs.
Effective Friday, Oct. 29 BC’s liquor-and food-primary liquor licensees are permitted to package and sell unmixed drinks for takeout or delivery with the purchase of a meal, such as a glass of wine, cider or draft beer, or an unmixed ounce of a spirit.
