British Columbia Premier John Horgan on Wednesday discussed the latest in the province’s COVID-19 reopening efforts and also talked about planned protests for Friday.

The premier said the feedback he’s been getting so far about the province’s June 1 reopening of in-class, part time classroom instruction is it’s been a “positive experience for many.”

Horgan said they’re looking at a hybrid model for schools in the fall with both in-class and online instruction.

When asked about B.C.’s tourism sector, he said the province is looking at easing travel restrictions in mid-June, but nothing’s guaranteed because anything could happen with the virus.

Currently, the provincial government is advising people to stay close to home and only leave their communities for essential travel.

On George Floyd related protests planned for Friday, Horgan said he’s hopeful they would be peaceful, but law enforcement would be ready.
