Proof of Vaccination?
Proof of vaccination required in BC to enter certain businesses
Personal services (salons, spas, and barbershops) are not included in the requirement. “We have other measures in place for those businesses such as mask wearing and ongoing efforts to keep people safe”.
In a meeting with the BeautyCouncil August 23, and the province of BC, Dr. Bonnie Henry today stated there will be a proof of vaccination requirement in BC to enter certain businesses or attend certain events, “to insure we continue to have safe workplaces”.
The infections are largely being driven by the small proportion of people who are not immunized said Dr. Henry.
“We need to take additional measures to insure our safety,” she added.
“We are not including personal service settings because they have done an excellent job in preventing transmission. The sector is not a source of COVID, however, should the sector wish to implement the requirement, we are open to discussion with the industry on that,” she stated.
“We need to be mindful that immunization is effective, but it’s not 100 per cent. We still need to be sure we’re keeping distances and having an effective communicable disease prevention plan in place” said Dr. Henry.
