EMO What's New

COVID-19 Update - Town of Qualicum Beach
Posted: Apr 13, 2020

Council would like to wish you a safe and happy Easter! 

April 9, 2020

We know that these are unusual times for many who would normally see family and attend religious gatherings this weekend. We want to encourage you to continue practicing physical distancing now, so that we can hopefully get back to some form or normalcy, see our loved ones and move about freely once again soon. There will be many opportunities this weekend to enjoy the great outdoors, and Council has agreed that keeping our trails open provides residents with opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and support our health and well-being. We do ask however, that you recreate responsibly. It's recommended to explore your own neighborhood as much as possible and not travel. Likewise, resist the urge while out walking to congregate and stop for a catch-up. A simple wave and greeting goes a long way. 

Hang in there Qualicum Beach we can do this!
