In light of the COVID-19 crisis the Shawnigan Lake Museum will be closed until further notice. The decision to close was not taken lightly and is based on the latest information being released by regional, provincial and federal public health authorities. We feel this is the best way to protect the health and well-being of our community. We will continue to evaluate the situation and respond accordingly, and will update you as the situation changes.
We know that seniors are at high risk of serious illness due to COVID-19 and want to ensure the safety of our community, volunteers and visitors. Being socially responsible, we want to do our part to help promote ‘social distancing’ to prevent the spread of this virus. As this is a fluid situation, we will remain closed until we receive further notice that it is safe to re-open the Museum.
Please go to shawniganlakemuseum.com for the most updated information about the closure and the re-opening of the Museum and/or Follow us on Facebook. We will continue to monitor emails and phone messages. If you have any questions or concerns, please call 250-743-8675 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care and stay healthy…we look forward to seeing you again very soon.
