STEP 3 of BC’s Restart Plan, Simplified

Categories: Church,Events,News

Things have really opened up in Step 3 of BC’s Restart Plan. View details below in a simplified, easy-to-read format.

The official version of the Province-wide COVID-19 Restrictions are available on the Government of B.C. website. Orders are implemented by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) and are adjusted as necessary based on the COVID-19 outbreak in British Columbia.

The Province of British Columbia formally lifted the provincial state of emergency at midnight on July 6, 2021. The provincial state of emergency was implemented in March 2020, allowing health and emergency management officials to continue to use extraordinary powers under the Emergency Program Act (EPA) to support the Province’s COVID-19 pandemic response.


NEW! Regional Restrictions in the Central Okanagan

As of August 6, 2021

Regional restrictions are in place for people who live in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Peachland, Lake Country and on Westbank First Nations lands (Central Okanagan Local Health Area). Non-essential travel is discouraged and unvaccinated people should not visit the area.

BC’s Restart: A plan to bring us back together

On May 25, 2021, Premier John Horgan, Dr. Bonnie Henry, and Minister Adrian Dix announced a careful, four-step Restart Plan to bring British Columbians back together. This plan is focused on protecting people and safely getting life back to normal. Getting vaccinated is the most important tool supporting our restart.

On July 1, 2021 we moved from STEP 2 to STEP 3 of BC’s Restart Plan, with lower COVID-19 numbers and over 75% of eligible British Columbians having had their first dose of vaccine.

The criteria used for each step of BC’s Restart Plan are:

  • declining COVID-19 case counts
  • increasing vaccination rate in people 18+
  • declining COVID-19 hospitalizations, including critical care
  • declining COVID-19 mortality rate

COMPLETE: STEPS 1 & 2 (May 25 – June 30, 2021)


We are in STEP 3

The criteria to enter STEP 3 was at least 70% of the 18+ population vaccinated with dose 1, along with declining case counts and COVID-19 hospitalizations. In Step 3, all sectors will transition to using communicable disease prevention guidance from WorkSafeBC.
