This section contains up-to-date information about reopening your business under the B.C. Restart Plan. We are currently in Phase 3.
Since Mid-March, British Columbians have played a vital role in helping to flatten the curve and prevent the transmission of COVID-19. In mid-May, the B.C. government launched the B.C. Restart Plan—a series of steps we will take together to protect people, reopen businesses, and ensure our province comes back from COVID-19 stronger than before.
British Columbia’s restart will be a careful, multi-phase process that ensures the gains we have made so far are not squandered. Different industries will be asked to develop enhanced protocols aligned with the Public Health and Safety Guidelines and WorkSafeBC.
In the meantime, we should all still be following health and safety protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including practising physical distancing, good hygiene, and other little things that make a big difference.
