COVID-19: BC to drop capacity limits, reopen nightclubs and bars as Omicron spread wanes

Global News in Canada shows that British Columbia health officials have announced B.C. will be dropping restrictions for indoor and outdoor gatherings while keeping the B.C. vaccine card in place.

Bars and nightclubs will be allowed to reopen and events can operate at 100 per cent capacity.

Dancing will be allowed at organized gatherings and mingling can resume at restaurants.

The change is expected to formally come into place at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday night.

"By following public health orders and advice we can do just about anything. These measures that have been in place to deal with the Omicron wave have been challenging for many," Premier John Horgan said.

The province will not be making any changes to the B.C. vaccine card program and masks will be required at organized events and gatherings.
