  1.     Travel precautions have been removed for Community Members and Residents.
  • Members and Residents currently under Self-Monitoring are no longer required to do so, but are required to wear masks and physical distancing must still be used while indoors or when physical distancing cannot be maintained.   
  • Restrictions will remain in place for essential workers, masks and physical distancing must still be used while indoors or when physical distancing cannot be maintained. 
  • All businesses retain the right to have COVID-19 controls in place for customers and workers protection, those policies are set by each business, not the EOC or BCCDC.  So do not throw your mask away – you’ll need them for any travel, and may need them in local businesses.
  • Kitasoo is still closed to all non-essential travel, travelers must complete application prior to entering the territory.

We would like to remind everyone to:

  • Wear a mask and maintain physical distancing whenever possible
  • Stay home if you feel sick
  • Seek medical advice and testing should you experience any signs and symptoms

 

The earliest the Province will move into Step 2 of the Restart plan is June 15, 2021, please standby for further updates.
