To slow the spread of COVID-19, the City of Vancouver has banned all dine-in service at restaurants and bars as of Saturday at midnight.

Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart made the announcement Friday, a day after he officially declared the city is under a local state of emergency.

“The latest numbers continue to demonstrate that despite the extraordinary efforts of federal, provincial, and local governments, we are one of the hardest hit regions in the country,” Stewart said.

He acknowledged the ban could bring hardship to businesses and employees but said it needed to happen.

As of Monday evening, 13 people in the province have died due to the new coronavirus.
