BC is opening up
Thursday, May 07, 2020
Here is an excerpt showing how my province is opening up:
"Beginning in mid-May, the province will allow medical and personal services appointments to be rescheduled under enhanced screening protocols. These appointments include things like family doctor visits, elective surgeries, dentist appointments, hair and nail treatments, counselling, massages, chiropractic appointments and speech therapy.
It also includes reopening much of the retail, recreation, restaurant, and employment sectors, with sufficient distancing measures in place. Provincial parks will reopen to daytime visits only and museums will also be allowed to reopen.
If the transmission of COVID-19 remains low through May, the province plans to reopen broad parts of the hotel and resort industry starting in June. These reopenings would include the return to overnight camping in provincial parks and the reopening of movie theatres and symphony performances.
The film and television industry can also return to domestic productions in June or July if transmission remains sufficiently low."
"Effective next weekend, health officials are encouraging British Columbians to engage in small gatherings with friends and family, limiting gatherings to between two and six people.
Outdoor gatherings are recommended to limit the likelihood of spreading the virus and physical distancing is still encouraged. Socializing in-person remains strictly prohibited for anyone with symptoms of cold, flu or COVID-19."
there is more but we are all encouraged that because we did the right thing this will also allow us to open up and not go back to the self isolation
