✅ The BC Centre for Disease Control wants to hear from you about your experience during this pandemic. Thank you to the over 175,000 people who have already answered the survey. You can access the survey at this link: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19/covid-19-survey.
🏞 Many provincial parks opened today for day use only. Let’s remember to keep our distance as we enjoy the wonders of our province. Campgrounds will remain closed until June 1st.
🔴 Sadly, three more people have passed away due to COVID-19 in BC. I wish to extend my condolences to their families, communities, and caregivers as they mourn the loss of a loved one.
💻 Today I joined MLA Lisa Beare, Maple Ridge Mayor Mike Morden, and officials from Fraser Health, Worksafe BC, the City of Maple Ridge’s Economic and Development Department, and Bylaw Compliance Officers for a webinar on how BC’s restart will look like in our communities. If you missed today’s livestream you can re-watch the entire event here: https://www.facebook.com/RidgeMeadowsChamber/videos/669160087255846/. Thank you to the Chamber of Commerce Serving Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows and the Downtown Maple Ridge Business Improvement Association for organizing this virtual townhall!
Let’s continue to follow Dr. Henry’s wise advice:
“Top of mind for all of us needs to be: fewer faces, smaller groups, shorter time together and bigger spaces. Always thinking about location, duration and our relations will help to keep all of us safe.
Let’s use this May long weekend as an opportunity for everyone to put our safe social interaction ‘rules’ into action. A safe path ahead is based on your personal circumstances and your actions.
Let’s keep our curve flat and keep our province strong – together.”
Be safe. Be well.
