Your health and safety are important to us

Maintain physical distancing by keeping a minimum 2-meter distance between you and any other person, not in your immediate family.

Wearing a non-medical mask or face covering while out in public is recommended for periods when it’s not possible to consistently maintain a 2-metre physical distance from others, particularly in crowded public settings.

Avoid touching your face and, in particular, your eyes, nose and mouth.

Practice good hand hygiene by washing your hands thoroughly and often. Wash hands with soap for a minimum of 20 seconds and rinse under clean running water.

If you are unwell, please stay home and do not volunteer. If you are at all unsure of your health status, the BC Centre for Disease Control’s online self-assessment tool is available at
