COVID-19 and Summertime…

The Government of Canada has been reminding us all that, as more people are vaccinated, restrictions may be starting to lift in our communities this summer. However, we must continue to follow local public health advice and be mindful of individual measures like physical distancing (i.e. staying 6 feet apart) and wearing a mask in public spaces. This summer, especially, we are all reminded to continue to avoid crowds.

If you are heading outside this summer, you can find ways to safely enjoy outdoor activities such as:

  • Camping
  • Hiking
  • Picnics
  • Small, outdoor gatherings on patios

You can find more information here.
