VANCOUVER – Capacity limits for B.C. event venues will soon be lifted when the province moves to the next phase of its vaccine-card program, the province’s top doctor announced Tuesday.
Dr. Bonnie Henry announced the changes to restrictions in B.C.’s live weekly COVID-19 briefing.
As of Oct. 25, indoor sporting venues, concerts, theatres, dance and symphony events will be able to operate at full capacity.
“This announcement gives us the runway to make up for it for the rest of our season,” said Angela Elster, CEO of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. In the past month, the orchestra has been performing in front of a 50 per cent capacity crowd at the Orpheum Theatre, equivalent to 1,100 people.
