The provincial state of emergency has now been extended through Aug. 18.

“In recent weeks, British Columbians have been reminded that COVID-19 case counts can easily rise if we’re not careful,” said Premier John Horgan. “As we continue our slow and safe approach to Phase 3, extending the provincial state of emergency will continue to provide government with the resources we need to respond to any new challenges. This is not the time to let our guard down.”  

The state of emergency can only be extended by up to 14 days at a time. The original declaration was made March 18.
