    B.C. is moving to Step 2 of the province’s COVID-19 restart plan on June 15.

    The criteria for moving to Step 2 is based on at least 65 per cent of the 18+ population being vaccinated with one dose, along with declining case counts and COVID-19 hospitalizations.

    As of Monday, more than 75 per cent of adults in B.C. are now vaccinated with their first dose.

    The other metrics for moving through the stages, COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, continue to steadily decline.

    “I am confident that we are on track to safely and confidently bridge to step 2 and am amending the relevant provincial health officer orders so we can do just that,” Dr. Bonnie Henry, provincial health officer said in a release. “The data shows us that with strong safety plans in place, and all of us continuing to use our layers of protection, we can now increase our much-needed social connections a little bit more. Whether it is travelling to visit family in B.C., having a small wedding or watching your child’s soccer game, these are the things we have all missed.”
