The Kamloops Chamber responds to easing of restrictions in British Columbia

KAMLOOPS – The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce welcomes yesterday’s announcement by the Government of British Columbia that will see several restrictions including the mask mandate in most indoor settings, effective 12:01 am March 11. The Province also announced on April 8, the proof of vaccination requirements will be eliminated. 

The announcement from Dr. Henry and Minister Dix is welcome news for many of the region’s businesses as they emerge from a challenging start to 2022. Of note, Kamloops Chamber members have expressed challenges with attracting and retaining talent, rising costs and supply chain disruptions in addition to the COVID-19 fight. This round of eased restrictions signals to the business community that we are on the road now towards economic recovery, towards a semblance of normalcy. 

 “Many Kamloops Chamber members are in the business of developing relationships and the removal of the mask mandate in most indoor settings will help bring back components of social connection that many have missed and craved,” said Acacia Pangilinan, Executive Director, Kamloops Chamber of Commerce.  

“We hope to see many smiles and faces out and around the community this weekend supporting our local businesses, and not for profits and we encourage patrons to be understanding during this time of transition,” said Pangilinan
