We thought it best to further explain the "closure" for tomorrow's nursing clinic. The outbreak of Covid-19 is at a critical stage on Vancouver Island. It is likely shifting to community spread as opposed to travelers carrying the infection. It is critical at this time that we not only isolate from travelers but from ourselves in order to slow down the spread of the virus. This has been all over the news. The health clinic brings people from the island together and therefore is not recommended at this time.

We are willing to talk to anyone regarding their health concerns and I am willing to come over to Lasqueti to assess them if required on any ferry day. Please, in no way, am I abandoning you.This is best for the island's health.

We and the Parksville Medical Clinic are not aware of any cases in our area however, public health is not releasing specific information at this time.

Best, Dianne and Larry
