Summer is just around the corner, which means there will be summer festivals and events to look forward to. Bonnie Henry, the B.C. Provincial Health Officer, would like to take this opportunity to remind us all, including festival organizers, promoters, local governments, health authorities, and public safety officials about attending and organizing events safely in the context of a toxic illegal drug supply and ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Please read Bonnie Henry’s letter on Harm Reduction Services at Summer Festivals for more information. Fact sheets for major planned events are also available.
