Mitigation Measures

Today, Dr. Henry said that she thought we were absolutely on track to enter Stage 4 on 7 Sept as planned. This surprises me, to say the least.

From the BC Restart website:

The criteria for moving to Step 4 is more than 70% of the 18+ population vaccinated with dose 1, along with low case counts and low COVID-19 hospitalizations.”

We’ve got the 70% vaxxed nailed. Our case counts are not low.

The BC Restart website now says that the case counts need to be “low”, and I had remembered it being “low and stable”. Well, this article from 25 May and this press release from 25 May both talk about Stage 4 criteria including being “low and stable”. Did someone move the goalposts to be closer?
