From the Provincial Court of BC
Effective August 25, 2021, further to an order of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO), people attending courthouses in British Columbia are required to wear a face mask, including in entrances, lobbies, waiting areas, registries, hallways, stairways, restrooms and elevators.
A face mask must be worn in a manner that covers your nose and mouth. If you do not have a face mask, Sheriffs will provide one when you enter the courthouse.
For masking requirements inside courtrooms, see NP 22 In-Person Proceedings During COVID-19: Health & Safety Protocols.
