“No matter where we may be this summer, remember that COVID-19 is still with us. So let’s make sure we travel respectfully, by using our travel manners, planning ahead, being prepared and maintaining safe social interactions.

“Before you go, do your research. Check in with the community to understand if it is welcoming visitors and what services are available and what may still be closed. Take your provisions with you if needed, and while away, take the same safety precautions you have been doing at home.

“For the visitors who come to our province from elsewhere in Canada, let’s show them how we are staying vigilant, being respectful of those around us and doing all we can protect our communities, our Elders and our loved ones.

“The things that we do and the decisions we make each day make a difference, so let’s do our part by being 100% committed to staying safe.”
