BC Moves Into Step 3 of Restart Plan
June 30 2021
Step 3: Starts July 1
The criteria for moving to Step 3 is at least 70% of the 18+ population vaccinated with dose 1, along with low case counts and declining COVID-19 hospitalizations. In Step 3, all sectors will transition to using communicable disease prevention guidance from WorkSafeBC.
Masks are recommended in public indoor settings for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated. The mask mandate order under the Emergency Program Act will be lifted July 1 and no proof of vaccination will be needed.
- You’re fully vaccinated 14 days after dose 2
- Some people may choose to continue to wear a mask after they’re fully vaccinated and that’s okay
