B.C.’s Response to COVID-19
B.C.’s response to COVID-19 began with a provincial four-step plan to carefully bring people back together. While provincial restrictions have eased substantially, that may change in the future.
Long-Term Care Visiting Restrictions
Most visiting restrictions have been lifted at long-term care facilities in B.C. and people who meet the visitation requirements are permitted. Visitors must provide proof of vaccination and a negative rapid antigen test, which may be taken at home up to 48 hours before the visit, or on arrival at the facility. Please review each facility’s restrictions before your visit.
Provincial restrictions are made by the Provincial Health Officer under the Public Health Act and others are made under the Emergency Program Act (EPA). Stay up to date on provincial and federal COVID-19 restrictions with the resources below.
