There are no capacity limits or restrictions on indoor or outdoor religious gatherings and worship services.
As COVID-19 vaccinations are administered throughout the province, we can gather in-person again to share hope, healing, restoration and recovery. As pillars of strength, religious organizations and faith-based worship services play a critical role in connecting the community by supporting beneficial and safe social interactions.
The Province is in Step 3 of its of BC’s Restart Plan. This guidance document outlines what faith leaders, members, volunteers, and others can do to hold worship services safely during Step 3, and how to prepare for the upcoming fall respiratory season.
Worship services are exempt from both the provincial mask mandate that requires mask use in indoor public spaces and the requirement to provide proof of immunization against COVID-19 to access some events, services and businesses. However, faith leaders are supported to implement these additional measures in their in-person services should they desire to do so.
These are the latest posted rules at BC Centre for Disease Control
