The recent news from the provincial authorities from British Columbia had been promising. COVID-19 seems to be under control in the province and things are set to get better as we turned the clocks with the daylight savings.
Dr. Bonnie Henry’s recent updates guiding people on how to be safe during the upcoming spring break are poised to help us all to enjoy the upcoming season well. Below is a summary of her recent advice which will help you to be safe during spring break. You can now have outdoor gatherings with a small group of friends.
Dr. Henry’s recent announcement allows up to 10 people to gather in outdoor spaces. This also means that families could step out with their kids or grandparents and enjoy the sunshine as long as the group does not exceed 10 members. Physical distancing is still expected to be followed.
One of the factors which will help to curb the virus from spreading is the change in weather. Warmer weather is expected to be safer in terms of virus transmission.
Indoor gatherings are still not allowed at this point.
Annie Kang, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Training stated that provincial authorities have contacted public colleges and universities to be prepared for in-person classes from this fall. She also said that more updates will follow shortly. Students and families should start planning in line with this recent progress. Currently, most of the universities conduct the majority of their classes online in British Columbia.
Now that things are getting better, are you all set to step out and enjoy beautiful British Columbia? Please do not forget to carry your face mask, sanitizer, and your sunscreen while you do so. As the general wide of the season shows that the restrictions are easing out and B.C. is recovering, it gives us all reason to cheer and enjoy the nature around.
