As of Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2021, masks must be worn in all indoor public spaces throughout B.C. to help slow the transmission of COVID-19 as B.C. prepares for the fall and respiratory illness season.
See the video update below.
A new order from the provincial health officer will require people 12 and older to wear masks in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status.
Masks may be removed temporarily in indoor public places to identify the individual wearing the mask, to consume food or beverage at a location designated for this purpose, while participating in a sport or fitness activity in a sport facility or while receiving a personal or health service that requires the mask to be removed.
A face shield is not a substitute for a mask as it has an opening below the mouth.
