Province-wide restrictions

As announced by health officials and cabinet ministers on June 30th, British Columbia has moved to Step 3 of our Restart Plan. This allows a much anticipated return to some of the activities that we have been missing over the course of the pandemic.

The Food and Liquor Serving Premises Order has been updated, with key changes summarized below:

  • Seating capacity is to be determined by the operator based on the number of people that can be safely accommodated. This number is to be recorded and not to be exceeded.
  • A patron must not enter if capacity is reached and must leave if asked by staff.
  • Congregation within or outside the facility must be prevented by the operator.
  • Patrons must still remain seated other than in tasting rooms with a liquor manufacturer licence, except to access a self-serve food/non-alcoholic beverage station or self serve lotto, or to pay, use washroom, or leave or return to the premises- with the addition of the following new reasons:
    • To use a juke box
    • To play pool, billiards, snooker or darts or bowl. Play can only be with other members of a single party who are all seated at the same table.
  • Self serve food drink stations still require hand sanitizer or hand washing facilities within easy reach, signs advising patrons on hand hygiene, and frequent cleaning/sanitizing of serving utensils.
  • Dance floors must be physically closed and not be used by patrons but can be used for a performance.
  • There is no longer a requirement to keep chair backs 2 m apart nor have patrons remain 2 m apart.
  • There are no restrictions on the number of people that can sit at a table.
  • There are no restrictions on when liquor can be served.

Key points from the Gatherings and Events Order, as it relates to events held in food premises, are as follows:

For inside events:

  • No more than 50 persons, or 50 % of the seated capacity excluding event staff, are present and are to be seated in a way that the seats are spread out and use all of the available space.
  • There must be an organizer and access must be controlled and capacity must be monitored and complied with.
  • Participants at indoor events must remain seated (in the same seat) for the duration of the event other than to obtain food or drink, use the washroom, provide care or first aid to a person or to leave and return to the place.
  • Self serve stations must have signs to remind patrons to wash or sanitize their hands prior to use.
  • High touch surfaces at the self serve station, and utensils that are used for self- serve, are to be frequently cleaned and sanitized.
  • Dance floors must be closed off or used for tables unless they are used for a dance performance. Patrons are to remain seated and not allowed to dance.
  • Hand wash stations or alcohol hand sanitizers are within easy reach for patrons.
  • Toilet facilities with running water, soap and paper towels for hand washing and drying purposes, or hand sanitation supplies, are available for participants.

For Outdoor events:

  • No more than 5000 people or 50% of the seated operating capacity (excluding staff), whichever is greater is allowed. There must be a seat for every participant and the seats must be organized in a way to utilize the available space.
  • Access to the event must be controlled and there must be an organizer. The Organizer must monitor the number of patrons and ensure it is not exceeded.
  • Toilet facilities with running water, soap and paper towels for hand washing and drying purposes, or hand sanitation supplies, are available for participants.
  • Self serve stations must have signs to remind patrons to wash or sanitize their hands prior to use.
  • High touch surfaces at the self serve station, and utensils that are used for self- serve, are frequently cleaned and sanitized.

Masks are no longer required and are recommended in indoor public places for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated.
