Covid-19 Province-wide Restrictions

The Province of British Columbia has extended the current Provincial Health Orders (PHO) that were to expire on November 23. The PHOs will now be in effect until December 7, 2020. A new PHO requires that all individuals, places of work and businesses in B.C. must significantly reduce social interactions and travel. Masks are now mandatory in all public indoor and retail spaces in B.C., including the Recreation Centre and municipal office.

This means, until December 7, 2020 at midnight:

No social gatherings of any size with anyone other than your household or core bubble. For example:

  • Do not invite friends or extended family to your household
  • Do not gather outdoors
  • Do not gather in your backyard
  • Do not have playdates for children

All events and community-based gatherings as defined in the PHO order – Gatherings and Events (PDF) are suspended. For example:

  • Galas
  • Musical or theatre performances
  • Seasonal activities
  • Silent auctions

Core bubble

For most people, their core bubble is their immediate household. For others, their core bubble may contain a partner, relative, friend or co-parent who lives in a different household. This should be a maximum of two people outside of those living in your immediate household.

An immediate household is:

  • A group of people who live in the same dwelling.

For example:

  • If you have a rental suite in your home, the suite is a separate household.
  • If you live in an apartment or house with roommates, you are all members of the same household.

People who live alone

People who live alone cannot host gatherings. They can continue to see the same one or two people of their core bubble at each other’s homes.

Travel

The province is advising against all non-essential travel throughout B.C. Until December 7, 2020, all British Columbians are being asked to stay in their own community and leave only for essential reasons such as work and health care appointments.

We encourage you to review the complete requirements of the new PHO on the provincial website: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/safety/emergency-preparedness-response-recovery/covid-19-provincial-support/restrictions
