With the spring weather and the Province loosening rules, many people are itchy to be outside and have COVID-19 restrictions relaxed for self-distancing and new social protocols. While families and children are outside appreciating the fresh-air, there are those who are hard at work. Tribute and thanks is to be given to those outdoor workers, who are preparing the city in many different ways, so Prince Rupert residents can safely enjoy their slightly expanded bubbles and time outside.

“Playgrounds remain closed, but City staff continue to conduct grounds maintenance activities in community green spaces in preparation for when these spaces can fully reopen,” City of Prince Rupert said on May 22, reminding residents of social protocols.
