Rumors of not opening are wild fabrications, I have heard nothing but positive rumblings for the summer. Extended play is on the table but as with so many things, it hinges on non-local decisions.
Summer 21 is looking great.
Perfect. Excited to get a full season this year. Last year, the trail crew did an amazing job, and made it a great season, even considering the screwed up year.
To Shoreboy, I don't want to be a dick, but here is some data for cases and vaccination: https://www.quiverquant.com/sources/covid/CANADA
Cases are relatively flat, vaccinations are up like crazy.
I would think that your using Canada wide data when we are talking about BC isnt the best choice. In the last month, the 7 day moving average for cases in BC (Feb 15 - Mar 15) has gone from 420 to 543. That is an increase of almost 25% in the last month. I would not call that 'relatively flat'.
As for vaccines, the ramp up is going well, but we have a long way to go. So far there are only ~87,000 people fully vaccinated, and ~350,000 with their first shot. Thats less than 2% of the BC population fully vaccinated, and 7% with their first shot. In my opinion, the province should be moving to vaccinating the 20-40yr old population at the same time as the seniors. Now that the LTC homes have been vaccinated, the death rate is falling. If we want to see a drop in cases, we need to vaccinate the group that seems to have the most problem adhering to the Covid protocols and showing the highest case count.
