BC’s Restart is a careful, four-step plan to bring B.C. back together. Starting May 25, we can gradually begin to restart our important social connections, businesses and activities. Getting vaccinated is the most important tool supporting our restart.
How we move through the steps
To move through the steps, we’re looking for:
Declining COVID-19 case counts
Increasing vaccination rate in people 18+
Declining COVID-19 hospitalizations, including critical care
Declining COVID-19 mortality rate
Step 1: Starting May 25
The criteria for Step 1 is at least 60% of the 18+ population vaccinated with dose 1, along with stable case counts and COVID-19 hospitalizations.
