Poll: new restrictions?

The provincial government is once again requiring B.C.’s restaurants, pubs and cafes to cease in-person indoor dining in an effort to curb the rising spread of COVID-19.

The announcement came Monday from Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s provincial health officer, after a week of surging new-case counts — particularly in the Lower Mainland.

In addition to indoor dining being prohibited, indoor adult group fitness activities are also paused, as are indoor religious worship services that had been set to resume in some form in time for Easter. Whistler Blackcomb ski resort will be closed as cases spread in the community.

Henry also urged British Columbians to travel only for essential work or medical reasons, and to work from home whenever possible.

“We need to pay attention to this now,” she said.

“Non-essential activities need to be limited to outside only, and with the same group of people.”

The new restrictions go into effect at midnight Monday and will be in place until at least April 19, Henry said.
