Proof of vaccination to continue in long-term care and assisted living

Burnaby, BC (April 7, 2022) – Health officials confirmed this Tuesday that British Columbia will continue to ease COVID-19 restrictions. This includes lifting the vaccine passport system, in many places, effective Friday, April 8th.

“We would like to remind friends and family members of long-term care and assisted living residents, that while British Columbians will no longer be required to show their cards at restaurants, movie theatres, sports venues, and bars, proof of vaccination will remain mandatory in long-term care and assisted living homes,” says Terry Lake, CEO, BC Care Providers Association.

“We remain deeply grateful for the efforts which family and friends have taken to support seniors in care over the past two years. Your commitment to keep care home residents and staff safe has been appreciated, and makes a difference,” says Lake.
