UPDATE! On June 15, British Columbia moved to Step 2 of its Restart Plan, allowing BC residents to travel throughout the province, enjoy larger outdoor gatherings with family and friends, and more.
Although some public health restrictions are lifting and recreation travel throughout the province is now permitted, many Public Health Orders are still in effect and non-essential travel between provinces (inter-provincial travel) is restricted until Step 3 of the plan (beginning July 1 earliest).
BC tourism businesses can refer to the Messaging Guidance for June 15 until further notice related to Step 2 of BC’s four-step Restart Plan. The document includes messaging and a FAQ. We want to assure you that we are all in this together, and Destination BC is here to support you.
The Province’s Restart Plan to bring British Columbians back together is following a careful, four-step framework focused on protecting people and safely getting life back to normal. Please visit the Government of BC’s Restart page for more information, including guidelines and advice, at: www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/covid-19/info/restart
If you have symptoms and may have been exposed to COVID-19, use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool, developed with the BC Ministry of Health, to help determine whether you may need further assessment or testing for the virus. You can complete the assessment for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, if they are unable to.
To arrange for further assessment or testing, call your local primary care provider or 8-1-1, or for deaf or hard of hearing call 7-1-1.
In partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, BC’s Ministry of Health, and other industry partners, we have created an FAQ. This will be continually updated, providing information from BC, national, and international partners to give you the information you need as it relates to travel and tourism. It will help you answer questions from your staff, visitors, and partners.FAQs
