Have a COVID-safe holiday
Our holidays will look a little different this year, but there are many ways to celebrate while keeping everyone safe. Get creative – unwrap presents over Zoom or take a walk through neighbourhood light displays with your household or core bubble. Now is the time to say 'no' to gatherings and non-essential travel.
Please follow the guidance and orders of public health authorities. For information on current provincial COVID-19 restrictions, visit www.gov.bc.ca/COVIDrestrictions.
Have a safe and happy holiday.
