In August, B.C., has seen a resurgence of COVID-1 cases, driven by an increase among young adults. This needs to be contained. While the best way to party right now is not to party at all, if you are going to, at least do it responsibly. Go through this website for tips on how to do so, and read below for B.C. specific restriction guidelines.
In B.C., the concept of a social "bubble" has been introduced with no firm limit as to the number of people in your bubble.
The bubble starts with the members of your immediate family and can be expanded slowly to include others.
Inside of your bubble you do not have to practice any social distancing and you can have physical contact (hug/kiss).
People are encouraged to limit the number of people in their bubble, and to remember that every time you add someone to your bubble, you are connecting with everyone in their bubble.
Outside your bubble, social distancing must take place (2 metres) and gathering should be limited to 2-6 people.
So what does all of this mean relative to having a party?
If you are going to do it, do it within your bubble and keep the numbers as low as possible. The good news is that if you use common sense, and communicate clearly with your friends (in your bubble) you could have a decent party.
The alternative is if you have a party with people outside of your bubble - it needs to be limited to 6 people, with social distancing (2 metres).
