COVID-19 cases in Cowichan Valley, Greater Nanaimo, Oceanside and Alberni-Clayoquot areas are rising.
➡️ From December 27 through to January 23, Cowichan Valley South (Duncan, Cowichan Bay, Shawinigan Lake, Cobble Hill and Mill Bay and surrounding areas) had 𝟮𝟬𝟱 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝗶𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗖𝗢𝗩𝗜𝗗-𝟭𝟵 𝗰𝗮𝘀𝗲𝘀.
➡️ Greater Nanaimo saw 𝟭𝟭𝟲 𝗻𝗲𝘄 𝗽𝗼𝘀𝗶𝘁𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗖𝗢𝗩𝗜𝗗-𝟭𝟵 𝗰𝗮𝘀𝗲𝘀 during that same period.
So many of us are doing our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by:
✔️ Staying home when sick not travelling
✔️ Washing our hands A LOT
✔️ Wearing masks in indoor public spaces
✔️ Keeping that safe 2m/6ft distance
But we need 𝗲𝘃𝗲𝗿𝘆𝗼𝗻𝗲 to pitch in! Ask yourself each day if you are doing all that you can to slow the spread of COVID-19. 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙚𝙡𝙨𝙚 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙮𝙤𝙪 𝙙𝙤 𝙩𝙤 𝙥𝙧𝙤𝙩𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙡𝙫𝙚𝙨, 𝙮𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙡𝙤𝙫𝙚𝙙 𝙤𝙣𝙚𝙨 𝙖𝙣𝙙 𝙤𝙪𝙧 𝙘𝙤𝙢𝙢𝙪𝙣𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙚𝙨?
Please hold the line, stay strong and keep it up. 🙏 Thank you for each and every hand wash, mask wear and safe choice you are making during this pandemic. Your efforts matter.
