The COVID-19 pandemic in British Columbia forms part of an ongoing worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), a novel infectious disease caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). On January 28, 2020, British Columbia became the second province to confirm a case of COVID-19 in Canada.[2] The first case of infection involved a patient who had recently returned from Wuhan, Hubei, China.[3] The first case of community transmission in Canada was confirmed in British Columbia on March 5, 2020.[4]

British Columbians have taken numerous emergency measures in an effort to reduce the spread of the virus, such as social distancing and self-isolation. On March 23, 2020, British Columbian Premier John Horgan announced the details of the province-wide emergency relief plan, which includes income support, tax relief and direct funding in order to mitigate economic effects of the pandemic.[5]

Management

A public health emergency was declared in the province on March 17.[6] On June 29, 2021, BC Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth signed Ministerial Order M275[7] to come into effect at the end of the day on June 30, 2021, ending the province-wide state of emergency since March 18, 2020.[8] Several municipalities in the Metro Vancouver Regional District have declared local states of emergency, including Vancouver, New Westminster, Delta, Surrey, and Richmond.[9]

On March 19, the BC Housing Management Commission placed a moratorium on evictions from government subsidized housing.[9]

British Columbia provided an online self assessment tool for those who are concerned they may be infected.[10] First responders such as police and firefighters have begun to ask screening questions about COVID-19 symptoms prior to attendance, and may wear additional personal protective equipment upon attendance to residences.[11]

Closures

Gatherings of over 50 people have been banned, and bars and nightclubs have been ordered to close.[12] Restaurants and cafes were initially permitted to remain open as long as staff were able to maintain physical distance from customers. However, on March 20, provincial health officer Bonnie Henry ordered the closure of all dine-in establishments.[13] On March 21, she ordered all personal service establishments, such as day spas, hair and beauty salons, and tattoo parlours, to close for the foreseeable future.[14] Many cities have closed public playgrounds, including Vancouver,[15] Delta,[16] Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, and Port Moody.[17]

Numerous businesses have voluntarily reduced operating hours or closed physical locations. Many have moved operations to phone and internet.[18][9]

Gatherings of people greater than 50 were still prohibited.[63][64] Entry to stage 4 was conditional on "widespread vaccination, community immunity, or successful treatments";[65] the national and global numbers of active cases also needed to decline in order for the province to recommend its implementation.

On February 26, Fraser Health stated that three more Surrey schools were exposed to COVID-19 variants of concern.[173]

On March 1, B.C. Health officials predicted that all British Columbians should be able to get the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines by the end of July.[174] They revised and extended the time between the two vaccine doses from 3–4 weeks to four months.[175] On March 4, Henry said that new vaccine approvals would hasten the schedule.[176]

On March 9, a new COVID-19 outbreak was declared in a Surrey care home where 88 percent of residents were vaccinated.[177] The provincial top doctor also warns that the vaccines will not stop all COVID-19 transmission.[178]

On March 10, B.C. Health officials decided to allow adults in Prince Rupert and Port Edward to be eligible for the first doses of COVID-19 vaccines by mid-March, as infections rates did not improve with the rest of the province.[179][180]

On March 11, Henry permitted outdoor gatherings of up to 10 people,[181] and provincial health officials stated on March 12 that all bars and restaurants must stop serving alcohol at 8 p.m. on St. Patrick's Day.[182][183]

On March 15, Henry stated that she was confident that all vaccines are "safe and effective", despite the AstraZeneca vaccine's side effects.[184]

On March 23, Henry warned that the province is potentially at its brink of the third wave in regards to the increase of COVID-19 infections among people aged between 20 and 59.[185][186]

On March 29, B.C. temporarily suspended the use of the AstraZeneca vaccine for adults under the age of 55, under the recommendation of the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI),[187] and resumed vaccinations with it for people aged 55 to 65 the following day.[188]

On April 5, two Vancouver restaurants had their business licences suspended for at least two weeks for defying COVID-19 related health orders against indoor dining.[189]

On April 6, Dix declared that the Brazilian COVID-19 variant (P.1) is more contagious than B.1.1.7 and B.1.351.[190][191] The provincial government also made a province-wide online vaccination booking system public.[192]

During the daily report on April 8, Henry stated that the province stopped determining strains in positive COVID-19 cases, which would all be presumed highly infectious.[193] Health officials also hinted that the variants were replacing the standard COVID-19 cases.[194]

On April 12, Henry declared that B.C. was officially in a third wave.[195] The day after, she urged all residents to "stay in their immediate neighbourhoods".[196]

On April 19, a two-year-old toddler was pronounced dead from COVID-19.[197] Health officials also lowered the age limit for the AstraZeneca vaccine to 40 years and older as B.C. set up vaccination clinics in the hot spots.[198]

On April 21, the province reported that 39 recent cases since April 4 were of the B.1617 variant of SARS-CoV-2 first discovered in India, which had been deemed a variant of interest.[199] Due to the threat of variants of concern, Minister of Public Safety Mike Farnworth issued an order on April 23 to prohibit non-essential interprovincial travel between the Lower Mainland/Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island, and Northern/Interior regions. The order would last through at least May 25, and be punishable by fines.[200][201]

On April 26, health officials confirmed that an infant died of COVID-19 back in January.[202]

On April 28, B.C. lowered the age limit of vaccine eligibility and began offering the AstraZeneca vaccine to people 30 years and older.[203]

May to August

COVID-19 immunization line administered in Guildford, Surrey

On May 2, B.C. Liberal MLA Mike Bernier announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19.[204]

On May 4, the British Columbia Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) changed its stance on COVID-19 transmission and confirmed SARS-CoV-2 can spread through aerosols.[205]

On May 6, B.C. reported the first case of blood clotting from the AstraZeneca vaccine.[206] On May 11, B.C. introduced legislation to fill gaps in sick pay related to COVID-19.[207]

On May 13, it was reported that over 98 percent of B.C.'s recent COVID-19 cases involved people who were either unvaccinated or had been vaccinated for less than three weeks.[208] B.C. also reported a second case of blood clotting related to the AstraZeneca vaccine.[209]

On May 18, as per the deprecation of the AstraZeneca vaccine across Canada due to concerns over blood clotting, health officials stated that those who had received it as their first dose may receive a different mRNA-based vaccine as their second dose.[210]

On May 24, the B.C. Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) issued a report stating that at least 85% of all new cases from May 9 to 15 involved four variants of concern. The Delta variant accounted for roughly 2% of these cases.[211]

On May 25, Horgan and Henry announced BC's Restart, a plan to ease the current restrictions (including restrictions on gatherings, business capacity, and interprovincial travel) in four phases, based on cases, hospitalizations, and vaccination progress. The process was expected to be completed by September.[212]

On May 27, the B.C. government announced that the time in between Moderna and Pfizer vaccine shots was reduced to around eight weeks.[213]

In the week of May 28, the number of COVID-19 cases attributed to the Delta variant rose to seven percent.[214]

On June 3, Henry reported three outbreaks at B.C. care homes involving the Delta variant.[215]

On June 15, due to declining cases and at least 65% of adults having received at least one vaccine dose, the province entered Step 2 of BC's Restart. This included lifting the interprovincial travel ban, and easing of capacity limits on gatherings and some businesses. The Delta variant was stated to be a "concern" in the province, but was not yet spreading rapidly.[216][217]

Over the Family Day weekend, Fraser Health (which had been the region most-impacted by COVID-19 provincially) administered 7,000 vaccine doses in a 32-hour "Vax-a-Thon" in Surrey.[218][219]

On July 1, the province entered Step 3 of BC's Restart; this eased further restrictions, including the indoor mask mandate, personal gatherings, some business capacity limits (subject to WorkSafeBC "communicable disease prevention guidance"), and casinos, nightclubs, and indoor sporting events to operate at limited capacities.[220]

On July 27, Dix, Henry, and Dr. Penny Ballem discussed aspects of the province's vaccine rollout and how it would deal with those who have actively refused the vaccine, with Henry stating that "It is a choice to be immunized, but there are consequences for people who are not immunized and that's going to be more important for us as we head into the fall".[221]

On July 28, health officials announced that the indoor mask mandate would be reinstated for the central Okanagan region, and that travel into the region would be discouraged regardless of vaccination status. The province cited an ongoing surge of COVID-19 cases in the region, particularly among younger residents; at least 323 cases had been recorded in the region since July 1, and the majority of them were among residents who were not yet fully-vaccinated.[222][223] On August 6, additional public health orders were announced for the region effective August 9, including ordering the closure of bars and nightclubs that do not serve food, ending liquor sales at 10 p.m. nightly, private gatherings restricted to five people, events restricted to 50 people with safety plan, and prohibiting high-intensity fitness classes.[224]

On August 8, the BCCDC suggested almost all COVID-19 cases reported in the last week of July were caused by the Delta variant.[225]

On August 9, B.C. reduced the interval between two COVID-19 vaccine doses from seven weeks to four weeks.[226]

On August 12, Dix and Henry announced all employees of assisted living and long-term care facilities in the province must be fully vaccinated by October 12.[227]

On August 20, it was announced that all targeted public health orders for the central Okanagan would be extended to the entirety of the Interior Health region. Henry stated that infections were "levelling off" in the central Okanagan, but that transmission had increased elsewhere in the region. She cited wildfire evacuations as a potential factor in these increases.[228]

On August 23, Henry announced that proof of vaccination would become mandatory for people aged 12 and over at "social, recreational, and discretionary events and businesses",[229] such as restaurants, nightclubs, gyms, organized indoor events, and ticketed sporting events. Patrons under 12 must be accompanied by a vaccinated adult. Effective September 13, individuals must present proof of at least one vaccine dose, and by October 24 they must present proof of full vaccination. Henry stated that this order would last through at least January 31, 2022, but may be extended if needed. The measure will be enforced with a new B.C. vaccine card, which will also be downloadable for smartphones. There will be no exceptions for recent negative tests, or for medical or religious reasons that prevent vaccination; faith-based gatherings and K-12 school activities are not covered by the order.[230][231][232][233]

The next day, Henry announced that the mask mandate for public indoor spaces would also be reinstated effective August 25, due to the Delta variant and the number of unvaccinated residents in the province. She also discussed plans for the next school year, allowing full-day, in-person learning as normal, but with masks mandatory for staff and students in grades 4 and up.[234][235]

On August 27, B.C. reported an increase in breakthrough infections among fully vaccinated individuals, which were attributed to unvaccinated people.[236]

September to December

In response to a significant increase of cases in the Northern Health region, the province established regional restrictions on September 2.[237]

On September 7, B.C. soft-launched the vaccine passport program[238][239] before being officially implemented on September 13.[240] As of September 27, the vaccine card with a QR code became only acceptable proof of vaccination for accessing many non-essential businesses.[241]

On October 5, B.C. promised to offer a third COVID-19 vaccine dose to moderately and severely immunocompromised residents.[242]

On October 14, B.C. announced new restrictions for residents living in the Northern Health region (including fully-vaccinated individuals) that are expected to last until November 19.[243]

On October 25, B.C. lifted indoor occupancy capacity restrictions in most regions.[244]

On October 30, B.C. introduced federal vaccine passports for people travelling by air, rail, or ship.[245]

On November 5, Henry declared COVID-19 as "[a] preventable disease" regards the vaccines' effectiveness.[246]

On November 16, B.C. confirmed the first case of Delta sublineage AY.4.2.[247]

On November 30, B.C. confirmed the first case of the Omicron variant in the Fraser Health region, which involved a traveller who returned from Nigeria and was quarantined.[248] On December 7, four individuals who arrived from Egypt, Iran, and Nigeria tested positive for the Omicron variant. Some of the cases were fully vaccinated with different vaccines.[249]

On December 17, Henry announced that a number of new restrictions on gatherings would be implemented due to the Omicron variant: from December 20, all organized gatherings require proof of vaccination regardless of size, bars and restaurants must prohibit activities such as mingling and dancing, and venues with a capacity over 1,000 are capped at 50% capacity. Sports tournaments and "organized New Year's Eve events" are prohibited. These orders are effective through January 31, 2022. The prohibition on New Year's Eve does not apply to seated events, but they are still subject to the aforementioned restrictions on mingling and dancing. The province did not employ the curfew used last year.[250][251]

On December 20, further restrictions were announced, effective December 22 through January 18: bars, nightclubs, and fitness facilities must close; all seated venues are capped at 50% capacity regardless of venue size; restaurants may continue to operate with social distancing and a maximum of six patrons per table; organized indoor gatherings are prohibited; and private gatherings are restricted to ten vaccinated individuals from a maximum of two households.[252]

On December 31, Henry announced that the self-isolation period for fully-vaccinated individuals was reduced to five days.[253]

2022

January to April

On January 18, B.C. scheduled to reopen gyms and exercise facilities, and extended the restriction on gathering until at least February 16.[254]

On January 20, the self-isolation period for fully-vaccinated individuals was removed from the province's COVID-19 guidelines.[255]

On January 25, B.C. tentatively extended the vaccine passport system until June 30.[256]

On January 26, B.C. detected some cases of Omicron variant lineage BA.2 in the province.[257]

On February 9, Henry discontinued the recording of active and recovered cases, stating that the data is losing its accuracy.[258]

On February 16, B.C. lifted most of the long-term restrictions that were enacted since December 2021, but mask mandates and vaccine passports remain in effect.[259]

On February 26, rapid COVID-19 antigen tests became available for people that are at least 70 years old.[260]

Variants of concern

The first case of the Alpha variant was confirmed on December 15, 2020, involving a traveller who had recently returned from London, UK. Beta was first confirmed on January 14, 2021, followed by Gamma on March 9. The first 39 cases of Delta were confirmed on April 21.[261][262] The first case of Omicron was confirmed on November 30, 2021, from a patient who had recently travelled to Nigeria.[248]

Notes

  • Starting January 14, 2022, current hospitalization has transitioned to census data by the hospitals where patients are currently hospitalized.
  • Starting January 21, 2022, the BC Centre for Disease Control has stopped recording the regional recovered cases.
  • Starting February 10, 2022, the BC Centre for Disease Control no longer provides provincial active and recovered cases due to waning data accuracy.

Social and economic impact

Deserted exterior of Canada Place. Note the two pedestrians on the left wearing face masks.

As a result of the pandemic, BC Ferries cancelled sailings,[271] began to permit passengers to stay in their vehicles during sailings,[272] and were granted authority to refuse to transport passengers showing symptoms consistent with the coronavirus.[273][274] On April 12, BC Ferries announced that they had reduced their sailings and were operating at 50 percent capacity.[275]

The provincial legislature passed an aid bill on March 25, 2020, before adjourning indefinitely.[276] While adjourned, some virtual sessions took place.[277] The leadership contest of the Green Party of British Columbia was postponed.[278][279]

In many parts of the province, residents began daily cheers at 7:00 p.m. to celebrate and thank healthcare workers.[280][281][282][283][284] In April, Mr. PG flew a flag emblazoned with a red heart as part of a community support initiative.[285]

In response to layoffs and unemployment, the government suspended nearly all evictions and froze rent increases. In limited circumstances where safety concerns exist, evictions were still permitted, as well as where notices were issued prior to the state of emergency. A $500 monthly rental rebate was also created to assist tenants unable to pay their monthly rent. The rebate is paid directly to landlords of qualifying tenants.[286] The Vancouver Tenants Union called for tenants in larger complexes to unite to negotiate favourable terms with landlords. Some other tenant advocacy groups called for a large-scale rent strike.[287][288]

The Pacific National Exhibition and Celebration of Light were both cancelled.[289] The Vancouver Pride Society cancelled its parade, and planned virtual events in its place.[290][291][292]

Closures caused cash-flow problems for attractions including Science World, the H. R. MacMillan Space Centre, and the Vancouver Aquarium, all of which rely on revenues from admissions.[293][294] Fundraisers raised over $600,000 for the Aquarium as a response to reports that the Aquarium may permanently close.[295][296]
