BC RCMP will be establishing COVID-19 Travel Restriction Road Checks at select locations starting on Thursday, May 6, 2021.
COVID-19 Travel Restrictions Road Checks will be located at:
Highway 99 in the Lillooet area
Highway 1 in the Boston Bar area
Highway 3 in the Manning Park area
Highway 5 in the Old Toll Booth area
The checks are part of the enforcement actions meant to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by limiting travel between three regions: Lower Mainland/ Fraser Valley, Vancouver Island, and Norther/Interior.
People traveling through those areas can expect traffic delays, and signage will be placed informing people of upcoming road checks.
At the road check, police officers will be asking for identification from drivers, documentation regarding the driver’s name and address, and the purpose for the driver’s travel.
If an officer determines that a person is travelling for non-essential reasons they will be directed to leave the region, and refusal will result in a fine.
