COVID Update April 23 - May 24, 2021

The Canadian border is closed to most international travellers. You are allowed to enter Canada if you are a:

  • Canadian citizen
  • Permanent resident of Canada
  • Temporary resident of Canada
  • Protected person (refugee status)
  • Person registered under the Indian Act
  • Foreign national with a non-discretionary (non-optional) reason to travel to Canada

As of April 23, 2021, the provincial government  will be erecting new border signs along the B.C.-Alberta border, reminding people to stay within their own province if travel isn’t essential. At this point, there will be no checkpoints.

Premier Horgan said he’s grateful that other provinces are encouraging their residents to stay home, adding that anyone trying to book accommodations from outside of B.C. over the next five weeks won’t be able to do so.

B.C. residents will not be able to book accommodations or a camping site outside of their local health authority. This is currently being done through a voluntary basis in the tourism sector, but Horgan said he is willing to introduce a government order if necessary.

Operators will cancel any bookings that have already been made, he said.

BC Parks will ensure that anyone who has booked a provincial camping site outside of their health authority will receive a refund.

  • Support may be available in each community to deliver food, groceries and prescriptions during the first 14 days after you return home, or anytime you need to self-isolate. Contact your local EOC for information on resources.  
  • If you are unable to fully self-isolate, it is important to self-monitor for symptoms for 14 days after travel and avoid spending time in public places. Limit your social interactions and consider using free delivery services rather than going to stores during this time.

If you’re experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, contact your local public health authority and isolate yourself at home for 14 days to avoid spreading it to others. Most people with mild symptoms will recover on their own.

Adults and children who have mild COVID-19 symptoms are able to stay at home with a caregiver throughout their recovery without needing hospitalization. If you’re a caregiver, follow the advice on how to care for someone with COVID-19 at home.
