COVID-19 Coronavirus Information
The CVRD has entered Stage 3 of its Regional District Services Restoration Plan, a coordinated corporate strategy to reopen facilities and restore program and service delivery.
In Stage 3 of the Plan, the majority of CVRD services levels remain unchanged from Stage 2. This stage does allow for increased service offerings at CVRD recreation facilities. Please see the COVID-19 & Recreation page for more detailed information on program guidelines and facility safety plans.
By order and direction of the Provincial Health Officer, masks are required for everyone in all public indoor settings and workplaces. People who cannot put on or remove a mask on their own are exempt. For children under the age of two a mask is not recommended.
Service and entry can be refused if a mask is not worn.
Please follow instructions on all signs. Persons displaying signs of illness (e.g. persistent cough) may be asked to leave for health and safety reasons. If you or any member of your household is sick, please stay home.
