New travel restrictions have been announced this Friday, April 23, and should last until May 25. Field Hockey BC is working alongside other sport organizations to get specific clarification from the Provincial Health authorities on how these restrictions will affect the sport sector. For the time being, we encourage our members to stay local and stay within your community.
As stated on the BC Government’s website, “The order combines B.C.’s five health authorities into three regions of the province. Travel into and out of the regions for non-essential reasons is not allowed and is now prohibited by law.”
The three regions are:
- Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley (Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health)
- Northern/Interior (Northern Health and Interior Health, including Bella Coola Valley, the Central Coast and Hope)
- Vancouver Island (Vancouver Island Health)
