Someone in BC has put a very 2020-twist on their Halloween decorations.
Forgoing classic ghosts and ghouls, a home in the town of Mill Bay on Vancouver Island decorated their property with the skeletal likeness of Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry and other frontline workers.
Victoria-based concert photographer Colin Smith posted the display on his Facebook page.
“Looks like a salute to essential/front line workers to me,” Smith wrote of the Vancouver Island home. “Great job!”
The spooky display features Dr. Henry as British Columbians have viewed her for months: poised at a podium in her signature pink shoes.
She’s flanked by other bare-boned heroes of the pandemic, including a grocery store worker, health care workers, and pet shop employee, complete with spooky animals. Signs imploring visitors to “be calm,” “be kind,” and “be safe” adorn the lawn as well.
While Henry has not called off Halloween trick-or-treating in BC, has reminded residents to celebrate safely by sticking to small groups outside, skipping parties, wearing masks, and keeping to your small “safe-six” bubble.
The BCCDC has put out a full Halloween safety guide, which can be viewed here.
