The BC government has extended the state of emergency until Sept. 29.

“Government and public health officials are doing what we can to fight this pandemic, but individual responsibility is going to play a major role in how this pandemic turns out,” said Premier John Horgan. “As we head into fall, every one of us needs to be following public health guidance to the letter so we can keep schools safe, keep the economy moving and flatten the curve.”

An additional four violation tickets have been issued since Aug. 28, in comparison to the 10 tickets issued in the first week after the introduction of the ticketing system.

The current state of emergency has been in place since March 15. It can be extended by up to two weeks at a time.
