Premier John Horgan and BC health officials will meet today to discuss the current circuit breaker restrictions that expired at 11:59 a.m. yesterday, Monday, May 24th.

In a tweet, Premier Horgan said that BC will share its plan to “carefully resume activities & return to normal life.”

The current circuit breaker restrictions limited travel across three health regions, banned indoor dining at restaurants and group classes at fitness studios, as well as restricted indoor gatherings and limited outdoor gatherings to 10 people.

Last May, BC implemented a “restart” plan outlining four phases of economic reopening. It’s believed a similar approach will be unveiled today during the live press conference.

On Monday, BC announced 974 new cases in a three-day-period with Island Health reporting 25 new cases.
