COVID-19 & Recreation


The COVID-19 pandemic has had an impact on the Cowichan Valley Regional District’s (CVRD) ability to deliver programs and services to its citizens. Many services were temporarily stopped or modified in response to COVID-19 to ensure the health and well-being of the community and staff.

The CVRD has developed the COVID-19 Restoration of Programs and Services Plan to assist with the gradual process and decision making needed to restore services. This process will be guided by information and advice from health authorities, other levels of government, WorkSafeBC, and other stakeholder groups such as the BC Recreation & Parks Association (BCRPA), Lifesaving Society of BC, VIA Sport BC and provincial and national sport governing bodies.

Our Community Services Department is focused on getting back to a “new normal" and restart our Recreation facilities to help you get back to being active, healthy and connected to your community in a safe manner. Additional precautions have been put in place to minimize risk, which includes facility safety plans and program guidelines to ensure the health and safety of all.

Update - November 19, 2020:
Masks are mandatory in all common areas within our facilities, including when you are entering and exiting the facility and using the washroom.

Prior to attending your local facility, please take the time to review the safety plan and program guidelines that are applicable to you:
