Coronavirus: B.C. urges end to large gatherings, international travel, including to U.S.

British Columbia’s top doctor has urged residents to avoid all non-essential international travel, including to the United States.

“I think this is really important, it is clear at this time that the evolving situation both in the United States and globally is a risk for all of us and we are strongly advising people not to travel,” said Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry, Thursday.

Anyone who travels outside Canada will need to stay away from school or work for 14 days upon return, said Health Minister Adrian Dix.

Henry has also directed event organizers to cancel any gathering larger than 250 people.
