It is heartwarming to see Parksville residents coming together to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Thank you for doing your part to help flatten the curve. Staying home and staying safe is working.
We know that people living in isolation are looking to engage and interact with others. We hope our online platforms are providing a connection for you. Although our offices are closed to the public, we are open for business and welcome your any questions you might have about City services during these challenging times. City staff continue to successfully provide services to our residents while staying safe and following provincial orders.
There are many resources available to stay up to date on the latest preventive measures and COVID-19 information for residents and businesses. Most recently, the City of Parksville and the Town of Qualicum Beach through Emergency Management Oceanside
, launched an enewsletter for our residents to provide additional information about the pandemic situation and how it affects our community.
Our City will be very different this summer, much quieter without our many festivals and events; however, please remember we are in this together and will get through it together. More than ever, we need our sense of community. Please support our businesses - by buying online from local businesses, participating in “Takeout Thursdays” from our local restaurants and checking out the many other resources offered by our businesses such as online adventures with local attractions.
On behalf of Parksville Council, stay safe and stay well. We are proud of the way our community has come together to support each other and help slow the spread of this virus.
