Chamber members and the entire Greater Victoria business community deserve a standing ovation for their diligence to adhere to provincial health orders. We've kept our customers, our employees and our community safe.
As we begin the fifth and final week of restrictions that began on March 29, we know you need more certainty about what lies ahead. On Thursday, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is expected to speak about some of those next steps. We also know that BC Premier John Horgan will have details next week about the plan for a gradual reopening.
The BC Restaurant and Food Association says restrictions to inside dining are expected to continue for a few more weeks, but restaurants should begin to plan for reopening.
What is clear is we need to continue abiding by current restrictions this weekend, and we need to keep encouraging friends and family to book their immunization appointments.
As soon as we hear more details from the PHO, The Chamber will share that information through all of our communication channels.
