It has not been a great month in BC and overall in Canada for covid-19. The numbers keep going up and up. In my mind, the BC government has been a too "wishy washy" in regards to restrictions to try and keep the numbers down in my estimation at least. They have been appealing for months for everyone to wear a mask but it hasn't helped. Finally the other day they made mask wearing mandatory throughout the province when you are in a public place. And now they have asked everyone to stay at home for the next couple weeks. This is not mandatory. Just a suggestion. Whether that will made an impact, we won't know for a couple weeks unfortunately. We have been very lucky here in Golden and area with very few cases of Covid. Unfortunately BC health specify the numbers in smaller centres only once a month. At the end of October, Golden had 5 cases total since January. We know there have been a few more. Someone I know here in Golden who owns a great restaurant just posted on facebook, he has covid as a result of being exposed through playing hockey. It is a group I used to play hockey with a few years ago. He has had to close down his restaurant for awhile and obviously he and his family are in quarantine. I wish him a safe and speedy recovery. Vagabond Lodge and Kicking Horse Resort are scheduled to open on December 11, after the "stay at home" suggestion has been lifted. Hopefully we can get back to having a great winter. I know I want to do this again. #staysafe #stayathome #wearamask
