Food services aboard all BC Ferries boats were suspended on March 19 and perishables donated to charity in order to minimize contacts to avoid the spread of COVID-19 on board.
Some safety measures at food service stations will remain in place as a precautionary measure against the virus.
All hot food will be served in packaging for customers to take to their vehicles, outer deck or limited cafeteria seating.
Passengers are encouraged to stay in their vehicles whenever possible, and maintain physical distancing aboard the ferries as much as they can.
Starting June 15, all BC Ferries passengers are required to carry a non medical face mask with them.
Everyone boarding a ferry route that travels longer than 30 minutes will be asked if they’re carrying a face covering and if they would be willing to wear it whenever necessary.
Anyone who says no to these questions will be declined boarding.
