This summer, make sure to take care of your physical, mental, social and nutritional health.
For the month of August, The Chamber has been suggesting ways to take healthier steps during these unique times.
Staying connected with your friends and family is an essential part of any great summer, and many social activities can be enjoyed while following provincial health protocols.
Provincial Health Officer Bonnie Henry advises to interact with fewer faces in bigger spaces, and to focus on engaging in activities that limit transmission risk. Organize a fun day at a park or beach, or spend time exploring the wilderness with a small group. Be sure to stock up on camping supplies from a local retailer.
Staying connected with friends or family by ordering takeout and enjoying a physically distanced picnic is a fun way to support local business while spending time together. Enjoy food and drinks at a Chamber Member Patio with a close friend. If they live in different city, talking on the phone or through a video chat is a great way to stay connected to a loved one.
The BCCDC also provides helpful suggestions for safe socialization. For sporting events, ensure you enforce no contact rules, have smaller teams, and disinfect equipment. Purchase a variety of sporting equipment from Chamber retailers. Resources for parents are also available with advice on how kids can play safely.
