Gyms and other exercise facilities are being allowed to reopen in British Columbia, a move the province's top doctor describes as a "cautious step" in lifting COVID-19 restrictions.

Dr. Bonnie Henry says proof of vaccination will be required to use gyms, which will operate under capacity limits.

Henry says other restrictions that went into effect in December will remain in place because of the high rates of transmission of COVID-19 and the number of people needing hospital care.

Bars and nightclubs will stay closed and capacity limits are still in place for restaurants, theatres and stadiums.

Henry says those restrictions will remain in place until Feb. 16.
