SALTAIR COMMUNITY WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO COVID – 19
We just received notification from the CVRD Board that all recreational facilities are being closed in the CVRD as of the end of today, March 16, which includes the Saltair Community Centre. These closures will be “until further notice” and may be for a month or two. We really do not know at this point what will happen with the Corona Virus situation.
Stay tuned for further updates as we move through these difficult times.
Thank you everyone for your support and patronage.
Posted for Saltair Community Society Board of Directors.
March 16th, 2020
As you all know, there is a very contagious virus going around.
The Society Directors are concerned about the health of not only our long term tenants, but also their clients and fellow members.
The Directors will be following the guidelines of Island Health/ CVRD at the Saltair Community Centre.
We will be keeping the Centre open for the time being until Island Health and/ or the CVRD ask that we close, or the Directors feel it is not healthy to keep the Centre open.
Should that happen, we will give you all enough notice to contact your members/clients.
We have stepped up our cleaning of the Centre to include washing of all door knobs, light switches, and toilet levers. As always, floors are being washed with disinfectant. We will incorporate adding bleach to the cleaning water.
We ask for your help and cooperation, by washing your hands with soap and water frequently,
stay home if feeling unwell,
cough/sneeze into your elbow,
keep hands away from your eyes and nose.
We will be placing signs in the Centre reminding everyone to wash their hands.
Should any of you feel that your classes/workshops should be cancelled now, please feel free to do so. Let me know, and your rental fee will be held in trust until such time you return.
We will also post on our website and Facebook your decision.

The CVRD is harmonizing and modernizing its Official Community Plan, and we want to hear from you!
The CVRD began this process by “harmonizing” our existing electoral area OCPs into one Regional OCP and is now moving towards modernizing that OCP to address regional trends.
The result of this process will be a Regional OCP that will set the foundation for the Cowichan Valley to be an attractive place to live work, and play for years to come.
