Updated May 25, 2021: Today the province launched its plan to safely bring British Columbians back together. BC’s Restart is a careful, four-step plan focused on protecting people and safely getting life back to normal.
The plan announced that travel restrictions for non-essential travel between health regions will remain in place until at least June 15 to stop the spread of COVID-19 and variants of concern. Fines can be given to people who leave their region for non-essential travel. Recreational travel in your region is allowed.
Under the Emergency Program Act (EPA), an order restricting non-essential travel between certain regions of the province is in place until June 15 at midnight. This includes travel for:
- Vacations, weekend getaways and tourism activities
- Visiting family or friends for social reasons
- Recreation activities
The second step in the restart is planned for June 15 at the earliest. In step two, travel restrictions within B.C. will be lifted and people will be encouraged to travel across the province.
The earliest possible move to the third step of the restart is July 1. At this point, provincial travel restrictions will be lifted and BC looks forward to inviting people from outside the province.
More information about the Province’s travel advisory is available on the Government of British Columbia’s website.
