Public health guidelines from COVID-19 are in effect, so community members must use caution.

Residents should maintain two metres of physical distance between others and limit gatherings to fewer than 50 people.

Members of the same household or cohort group should also keep common equipment between them and wash their hands frequently.

The RMWB suggest residents stay home if they are ill.

Areas impacted by the 2020 River Break Up Flood remain closed for damage assessment and repairs.

All spray parks remain closed as well.
