BC travel restrictions introduced

- University of Victoria

On April 23, Minister Mike Farnworth introduced measures that restrict travel within the province in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. At this time, all non-essential travel outside your local health authority should be avoided. This includes travel into and out of BC and between regions of the province, travel for a vacation and travel to visit friends or family outside of your household or core bubble. More info.

On April 19, Dr. Bonnie Henry announced an extension to the province-wide Public Health Orders in response to the significant increase in COVID-19 cases, particularly variants of concern. The measures, which will continue until at least 11:59 pm May 24, restrict indoor social activities, including group exercise classes, dining at restaurants, bars and pubs, and religious gatherings and worship services.
