Follow the province-wide restrictions in effect.

BC's Restart is a careful, four-step plan to bring B.C. back together. Getting vaccinated is the most important tool supporting our restart.

Get your COVID-19 vaccine.

Anyone 12 years and older can walk in and get a COVID-19 vaccine or register to book their first or second dose appointment online through Get Vaccinated. Learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine. Find out tips on how to talk to your friends and family about the COVID-19 vaccine.

By order of the Provincial Health Officer, proof of vaccination will be required to access some events, services and businesses. Starting September 13, you must have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. By October 24, you must be fully vaccinated. Learn more at the Government of B.C. website.

Wear a mask.

As of Wednesday, August 25, 2021, masks are required in all indoor public spaces to help slow the transmission of COVID-19 as we approach the fall and respiratory illness season.
