LIFTED: Mandatory Mask Policy
The mandatory mask policy has been lifted as the B.C. Provincial Health Officer announced they are no longer required to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Please be kind and respectful to those who choose to continue to wear a mask. Please also be kind and respectful to those who choose to take them off.
Daily Health Screening: Formal process no longer required
