The provincial government is easing some restrictions under the Orange Level just in time for the March Break.

The changes include travel between zones in the province will be permitted – you may include people from other zones in your “Steady 10” contacts – and – hospital visits will be allowed as per regional health authority policies – and compassionate travel exemptions with Public Health pre-approval will be extended to people who are non-residents to attend a funeral subject to mandatory five day self isolation and a negative COVID-19 test on day five.

The changes take effect at midnight tonight. Full details on Orange Level restrictions including the updates can be found here.
