Mission, BC—As the transmission of COVID-19 continues to increase throughout British Columbia, the District of Mission is encouraging community members to remain vigilant to all public health protocols outlined by our Provincial Health Officer to help slow the spread of this virus and keep our community safe.
“With fall here, it’s important that we keep to our COVID-19 safety basics. This means washing hands, keeping a safe physical distance from others or wearing a mask, and staying home if you’re feeling sick,” said Acting Mayor Carol Hamilton. “We’re hearing from our health authorities that the virus remains with us and that the number of COVID-19 cases is increasing. The best thing we can all do at this time is practice good hygiene.”
Currently, the District of Mission has implemented a number of COVID-19 safety response measures in civic facilities while continuing to provide services to the public, including:
- Limits on occupancy numbers in all District facilities, including the lobbies of Public Works, Fire Rescue Services, and Welton Common;
- Enhanced cleaning schedules;
- Floor decals to mark appropriate physical distancing spaces;
- Plexiglass protective barriers at public counters;
- Mandatory masks while entering, exiting and moving around the common areas of the Leisure Centre.
