Public Requested to Limit Ferry Travel
BC Ferries has announced that their Lower mainland, Vancouver Island & the Gulf Island ferries will continue to operate but travellers are asked to only take the ferries when necessary.
"None of us should be travelling if it is not essential,” said Mark Collins, BC Ferries president and CEO, in a statement.
Travellers that need to travel should know that the company has taken steps to keep ferry travel as safe as possible but customers are being requested to adhere to safe practices for their own safety and for the safety of BC Ferries employees."
Enhanced cleaning measures are in place aboard all operating BC Ferries.
Passengers are at this time, able to remain in their vehicles on most decks to restrict contact with other passengers.
