We do our best to keep the information up to date but please check official resources for health information about the disease.
Everyone should be following the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) guidelines and practice physical distancing as much as possible.
The BCCDC says:
Physical distancing is limiting close contact with other people to slow the spread of an infectious disease. This includes keeping two meters apart from others in public.
Self-isolation means staying home and avoiding situations where you could come in contact with others. While you are self-isolating in BC, you will be required to monitor for new symptoms or signs of coronavirus such as fever, cough, sore throat, etc.
Although not required, wearing a non-medical or cloth mask is a good option in situations where you cannot keep a safe distance from others for an extended period of time such as when you are on transit, getting a haircut or visiting someone indoors. Some organizations and businesses have made masks mandatory. For a list, see “Do I have to wear a mask?” Many individual stores and personal services businesses, such as hair salons, already require customers to wear a mask. If you do not already wear a mask while in indoor public spaces, it may be helpful to carry a mask with you in case you are asked to cover your face.
See BCCDC’s Common Questions page for more information.
