The Chamber strongly supports the guidance of Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, and we are waiting for direction on regional restrictions for BC.
With Vancouver Islanders making a concerted effort to keep COVID-19 cases low, it's time to at least consider why businesses here face the same restrictions as areas of the Lower Mainland that have not had the same success.
"We are hearing some frustration that the entire province is being painted with the same brush," Chamber CEO Bruce Williams told CTV News Vancouver Island on Tuesday. "People are saying that we are abiding by the rules here and have really never seen a bump in cases."
The Chamber would like to hear from our members about what you would like the province to do. Are you in support of regional restrictions, or do we need to continue to apply the same rules to the entire province?
