COVID-19: BC vaccine card mandate set to be dropped on Friday

British Columbians will no longer be required to show proof of COVID-19 immunization to attend a concert, eat at a restaurant or go to the gym as of Friday, April 8.

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry announced on Tuesday afternoon the lifting of the last major COVID-19 public health restriction. However, businesses can decide if they still require a vaccine card for entry, Henry said.

This comes as independent modelers warn of the sixth wave of COVID-19 cases in the province. But Henry is quick to point out that even though cases may be on the rise, hospitalizations and intensive care visits linked to COVID continue to remain manageable.

“We believe we can remove some of the restrictions weighing the risk. We know some businesses will still decide to use the vaccine card based on their clientele,” Henry said.

“Rates remain very low for most younger people and even those in the 60 and 70s age range. It is very clear having a booster is highly protective.”

The province will also be getting rid of COVID-19 specific safety plans on Friday. The plans will be replaced by communicable disease plans.
