Randi-Marie Adams 

Dr. Bonnie Henry announced new restrictions today for the entire Province. These measures will remain in place until December 7th and could be extended.

The order is in effect from November 19, 2020, at midnight to December 7, 2020, at midnight.

***Mask requirements****
Masks are now required for everyone in all public indoor settings and workplaces. People who cannot wear a mask or who cannot put on or remove a mask on their own are exempt.

Employers are expected to enforce the mandatory mask policy with both employees and customers
A customer can be refused entry or service if they do not wear a mask

Social gatherings and events
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:

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 advisory
At this time, all non-essential travel should be avoided. This includes travel into and out of B.C. and between regions of the province. For example:

Do not travel for a vacation
Do not travel to visit friends or family outside of your household or core bubble
