City sends out reminder to stay safe at popular summer cooldown locations

It’s heating up out there.

With hot summer weather in the forecast, the City of Campbell River says people are starting to spend more time at popular spots for keeping cool.

In particular, the city says McIvor Lake and the Splash Park are becoming increasingly crowded.

To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, it’s issuing an important reminder for you to keep a two-metre distance from people who are not part of your household.

“As more people expand activities outside their home, increase contact with other people, and travel, it’s up to all of us to follow all public health directions to keep our communities safe and healthy,” a city release says.

“Recent increasing numbers of COVID-19 cases in British Columbia indicate that no community is immune, and we must all act to prevent the spread of this virus.”

Wherever you are, and whatever you’re doing this summer, the city is urging you to keep public health and safety top of mind.

The city adds that you can do your part by:

  • Handwashing
  • Keeping your distance from people who aren’t part of your household
  • Wearing a mask if you can’t maintain that recommended two-metre distance
  • Keeping your social bubble small and activities safe
