As Evans Lake is primarily used by schools, learning and living in a group setting, we want to reach out to you amidst the most recent updates on COVID-19 (Coronavirus). We understand there is a lot of feelings and concerns about this outbreak and there are a lot of unknowns at this time. The bottom line is we want to make sure everyone is – and feels – safe, so we will be having discussions with our team and our board over the next two weeks to determine our plans for the month of April. As it stands now, all April groups are continuing as planned, with modifications for increased sanitization and hand washing. We will be actively monitoring WHO, municipal, provincial and federal health authorities for updates, to assess and make decisions moving forward. As of today, the BC Centre for Disease Control continues to advise that, while there are confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in British Columbia, the risk remains low.
We urge everyone to take the necessary precautions and to do their best to reduce the risk of spreading this illness. These are a few easy ways to ensure lower risk of contracting and sharing any virus:
- Wash your hands frequently with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds after using the washroom, sneezing, coughing, and touching public surfaces.
- Avoid touching your nose, mouth, and eyes.
- Cough and sneeze into the crease of your elbow.
We at Evans Lake wish you and your loved one’s health and strength throughout this process, and will be in touch as more information comes up.

Evans Lake Team & Board of Directors
