COVID-19 Outbreak on Haida Gwaii Village of Masset Community Response

With confirmation from Northern Health on July 24th of a COVID-19 outbreak on Haida Gwaii the Village of Masset, out of an abundance of caution, has made the decision to close all public facilities until further notice.  This includes the gym, roller rink and community hall.  The village office will remain open to answer your questions and address your concerns.  To reduce the need for unnecessary excursions we encourage people to call 250-626-3995 rather than visiting the office in person.  Travel amongst the island communities is also being discouraged at this time.  Face masks are encouraged in public settings i.e. shopping, banking & post office trips. 

If you feel you may be experiencing COVID symptoms call the Northern Health Hotline at 1-844-645-7811.

Please be kind and be vigilant during this difficult time.  Keep your circle small, practice physical distancing, wash or sanitize your hands often and wear a mask if you must go out.
