The Government of BC's Restart Plan

BC’s Restart Plan lays out a series of steps that we will take together to protect people and ensure that our province can come back from COVID-19 stronger than before.

On May 5th, the Government of BC announced, a Careful Restart Plan for BC businesses. The plan will be a careful, step-by-step process to make sure our combined efforts and sacrifices are not squandered.

Some restrictions will be in place for a while. But some things will become a little easier, starting mid-May.

To keep moving forward, it’s going to take all of us – people, businesses and organizations – staying vigilant and following BC’s enhanced protocols, like cleaning more often and making spaces safer.

Let’s all do our part as we move forward, together.
