After enjoying a month of movie theaters, birthday parties, BBQs, block parties, and any other personal configuration of an outdoor gathering with up to 50 people, it already feels like life is back to normal, however as of July 1, British Columbia is rolling out its most exciting section of the plan yet: Phase 3.
What Does Phase 3 of the BC Restart Plan Mean in Vancouver?
Above all else, it means a full return to usual for indoor and outdoor personal gatherings with merely a strict community request to of course still stay home and get tested if you feel ill, and to wear your mask in public settings. It sounds as though it is not required at this time, however, encouraged where you are able for the sake of the whole community’s progress.
Any organized events will run at increased capacity both indoors and outdoors, with COVID-19 Safety Plans in place, and this includes fairs and festivals!
While larger-scale parties and some concert events such as BC’s famed Rockin’ River will remain on hold, Playland has already extended their hours to be open on weekends! With this exciting new increase of traffic, early booking is still recommended.
Perhaps the most exciting category – or at least for those of us giving away daily deals at 39 downtown Vancouver hotels and attractions- Canada-wide recreational travel is back! And now has never been a better time to explore our one-of-a-kind Pacific Northwestern City.
Sports and Exercise
While we think it is fantastic that our local fitness facilities are once again allowed to host classes at their standard capacity, for those fitness fanatics who would rather enjoy the heat, or are not yet quite ready to take this indoor leap, be sure to keep an eye on the Daily 2021 Stanley Park Events Calendar, as well as specials such as this Cycle Vancouver promotion. For those of you coming from out of town, as noted above, we even have a few great deals on 39 downtown Vancouver hotels that host absolutely incredible, near private fitness facilities.
What else is happening?
Let’s all not leave our favourite phase 1 past-time in the dust! There are still hundreds of downtown Vancouver patios to hop.
