Weekly Covid Report – Gulf Islands and Southern Vancouver Island


For this week, the number of new COVID-19 cases for the Gulf Islands and immediate surrounding area remains relatively constant. 

What is of concern is the area from Duncan north towards Nanaimo; an area where many Salt Springers travel for services. From Jan. 1 to 28, this area had 435 new COVID cases. This is a 110 per cent increase over the entire 2020 year. 

We will continue to watch it. Keep your distances, and your masks on!
