Keep in mind, however, that measures to practice physical distancing and remain close to home still apply, regardless of the weather.

Warm and sunny conditions over previous weeks have often been factors in drawing large, dense crowds to the seawalls, beaches, and parks across Metro Vancouver.

While health authorities agree that it’s essential to spend time outside and exercise, it’s even more important that people remain in small groups and stay within their neighbourhood.

Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry says she believes the province will “do the right thing” and continue to follow guidelines on restrictions.
