October 2022 update
|Although we are on the road to recovery, we are not through it yet and new variants are expected this fall. Please continue to use the many hand sanitizing stations around the Public Market and outdoor seating areas, as well as maintain social distancing. We have increased outdoor seating considerably to ensure our visitors are comfortable remaining outside to socialize.
Individual merchants may continue to wear masks in their premises. Business owners are making the best choice for the health and safety of themselves and their employees. Please respect this.
If you or someone you know is experiencing possible COVID-19 symptoms, call the provincial health information hotline at 8-1-1, or contact the B.C Centre for Disease Control at 1-833-784-4397.
