VICTORIA, B.C. – The Provincial Government has extended the province-wide state of emergency until Tuesday, August 4th, 2020.

During this time, Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, Mike Farnworth, will continue to use extraordinary powers under the Emergency Program Act to help support the Province’s COVID-19 pandemic response.

“While some restrictions have been eased, we must stay the course to flatten the COVID-19 curve,” Farnworth said. “This means that even as British Columbian’s start to carefully adjust to life in Phase 3, we are maintaining the necessary critical supports to respond to and alleviate the effects of this pandemic.”
