It looks like you might be able to put those summer plans you had back into action. Or at least make new, more Canadian ones. B.C. Premier John Horgan said on Wednesday, June 17, that he's hopeful locals will be able to travel around Canada again very soon. He said he's optimistic that it could be as early as next week, so start fueling up that car.\nRoad trips may be in the near future for all of us B.C. residents, according to a COVID-19 update to the public on Wednesday.\nWhile residents are already allowed to camp within the province's borders, you could be taking your adventures on the road sooner than you think.\nNoting that the people of B.C. have worked hard to flatten the curve, the premier explained that Dr. Bonnie Henry would have more information in the coming days that will help guide the decisions the cabinet will be making with respect to travel orders.\nHe said that he was interested in doing everything he can to make sure he and officials are not putting anyone at risk.\nThat being said, he was “hopeful” that sometime in the next week the province will be able to move into phase 3 of the relaunch strategy.\nAccording to the B.C. government, if transmission rates remain low or continue to decline, people can begin to travel.\nThat would also mean that under enhanced protocols, hotels and resorts could begin reopening.\nIn addition to travelling between provinces, phase 3 would mean the film industry could begin with domestic productions once more.\nWorkSafeBC has already launched a series of guidelines for this industry to follow, including limiting intimate scenes and conducting virtual casting.\nMovies and symphonies would also begin to open up; however, no large concerts could be held.\nIn terms of school, phase 3 would mean a mix of online and in-class lectures for post-secondary students and a partial return to school for grades K to 12.\nThere is no tentative plan for the next phase to begin as it's conditional on at least one of thee factors including a vaccine, community immunity, and broad successful treatments.\nThe final phase would include reopening international tourism and hosting concerts, live sporting events, and conventions.\nAs of now, we will receive the final word on the launch of phase 3 and what this means for domestic travel in the coming days, says Horgan.
