“If there are others using the playground when you arrive, please wait your turn or come back later,” stated chief administrative officer Rod Allan. “Your supervision is highly recommended to ensure physical distancing. We cannot afford to let our guards down.”

The release states that although the risk of COVID-19 transmission in outdoor recreation environments is not as high as it is indoors, the risk still exists.

“We can safely operate our playgrounds by following the safety measures on the signage,” stated Allan. “Tla’amin is carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation. It is an evolving situation, and we will respond to changes based upon orders and advice from public health officials. It is imperative that we keep the health and safety of everyone a top priority.”
