On Wednesday British Columbia Premier John Horgan along with provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and health minister Adrian Dix announced how the province will begin to reopen the economy starting in mid-May.

Among those businesses slated to reopen in mid-May are certain health services, retail outlets, restaurants, salons and museums.

Hotels, resorts and parks could begin reopening in June while some entertainment venues would be slated for reopening in July. However, large concerts would not be included in this.

A mix of online and classroom post-secondary education is planned for September, along with classes returning for students in kindergarten to Grade 12.

Professional sports with a live audience, large concerts, conventions and international tourism wouldn’t be allowed to resume until either a vaccine is widely available, community immunity has been reached, or effective treatment can be provided for the disease.
