The Impact of COVID-19 on Island Life

Every year visitors from all over British Columbia and from around the world are drawn to the Southern Gulf Islands for unique cultural and outdoor experiences. It’s a special place to retreat and relax. But the COVID-19 pandemic has brought much uncertainty to our small communities. Services on the Islands are seriously reduced and local medical facilities are taxed. We are here to help you plan and welcome you for future visits.

Thank you for understanding the importance of staying home during this crisis. We encourage everyone to refer to only official and up-to-date sources of information so we will not be regularly posting COVID-19 updates but leave you with this link to Destination BC’s travel-related information that also includes links to public health agency advisories, directives, and recommendations

Please stay safe by following the guidelines issued by Health Canada and BC’s Public Health Officer. Thank you to all of our visitors for understanding our community safety needs. We look forward to sharing our beautiful islands and local hospitality with you once this crisis ends. In the meantime, please be a virtual visitor and enjoy the images at
