At the end of July, British Columbia implemented new measures at restaurants, bars and nightclubs in British Columbia after a number of exhibition events. Under the new measures, all customers must be seated, self-serve alcohol is not available (meaning no bar orders) and dance floors are closed.

Health Minister Adrian Dix and Provincial Health Administrator Dr Bonnie Henry announced 121 new cases of COVID-19 and one new death on Friday afternoon and urged people to maintain a balance between fun and caution this long weekend.

New modeling presented on Thursday showed that a spike in infections in younger people has lowered the median age of those who contract COVID-19 to 41. The number of hospitalizations and deaths is lower than in April and May as the youngest are now contracting the virus.

The overall infection curve is on the rise with a record 124 infections in one day announced by health officials on August 28.
