We're ahead of schedule in B.C. and starting tomorrow, most public health orders and restrictions will be lifted and that includes mandatory masks. 

Mask wearing will be recommended, not mandatory, in all indoor public spaces for people age 12 and over, who are not yet fully immunized.

“That means it is important for us to continue to wear masks in those indoor settings when we're around people that we don't know, and where we not yet have been fully protected,” she said. “Some people may also continue to choose to wear masks, and that's OK. We need to remember that we all need to go at our own pace and there are some reasons why we maybe feel more at risk, or it may be important for us to continue to protect ourselves using masks.”
