Spring break will go ahead as planned for BC students.
Premier John Horgan confirmed the news on Monday, saying officials have no plans to delay the break scheduled from March 13 until March 21.
“When it comes to school-aged children, we’re trying to keep a sense of normalcy,” he said.
“When spring break arrives, our advice will be, as it has been for months and months and months – stay close to home. Try and stay within known bubbles."
Meanwhile, school officials in Ontario have decided to delay spring break by a month due to COVID-19.
BC is continuing to explore options on how to restrict travel into the province for spring break, but has yet to enact any new anti-travel regulations.
Horgan did suggest that if COVID-19 numbers continue to go down, British Columbians may once again be encouraged to explore their own province.
However, heading into the long weekend officials are calling on residents to stay local.
“As we ramp up vaccinations, as we see better weather, people will start to relax and let down their guard,” Horgan said, noting the next ten weeks are crucial.
“This is not the time to do that. We need to keep at it people.”
