The Legislative Assembly continues to closely monitor the rapidly-evolving situation with the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. The Legislative Assembly is committed to ensuring that we respond appropriately, in accordance with the advice and guidance issued by the Office of the Provincial Health Officer and the B.C. Centre for Disease Control. The Legislative Assembly Communicable Disease Plan is now available. 

General public access to the Parliament Buildings and Public Use of Grounds Requests will be granted in accordance with the guidance and orders issued by the Office of the Provincial Health Officer and the B.C. Centre for Disease Control.

Recognizing the importance of B.C.'s COVID-19 immunization program, all Members, caucus staff, Legislative Assembly Administration staff, and guests to the Parliament Buildings will be required to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination to gain access to any buildings on the Legislative Precinct. This initiative came into effect on Monday, September 13, 2021, and is expected to end on Monday, January 31, 2022. The program will be re-evaluated regularly and may be subject to extension by the Legislative Assembly Management Committee.
