POSTED NOVEMBER 11, 2020 - New regional orders have been issued for people living in communities in the Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health areas in an effort to slow the rapid number of cases of COVID-19. Effective until November 23, 2020, the orders focus on strictly limiting social gatherings, travel, indoor group physical activities and workplace safety. READ MORE HERE.

October 26, 2020 - With COVID-19 cases on the rise, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has issued new public health orders today. Gatherings in private homes are limited to no more than your immediate household, plus six others. This is a provincewide order that applies to all homes for all occasions.
Enforcement will be stepped up to ensure people are following this new order, with the immediate focus on the Fraser Health region, where the increase in new cases is most notable.
In addition to this new order and in light of the increased risks with respiratory season, the expectation is that people will wear masks in all indoor public spaces. As part of this, businesses are asked to review their COVID-19 safety plans with this in mind. If you are in a high-traffic area or among many people outside of your household while at work, a mask will help to protect you and those around you.
British Columbia remains in a provincial state of emergency. During this time, the Provincial Health Officer can make orders as needed and you must follow the orders.
