Dear Community Member —

Thank you for doing your part during the winter holiday season. I know that it wasn’t easy stepping back from the deeply important family gatherings that so many of us look forward to every year. 

We still have a ways to go, but there is light at the end of the tunnel because of your efforts.

Current public health orders and restrictions have been extended until February 5, 2021.

While we continue to do our part as individuals, the most comprehensive vaccine program in B.C. history is now well underway. 

Those currently being vaccinated include residents and workers in long-term care and assisted living facilities as well as isolated Indigenous communities
