Saying goodbye during Covid-19
Due to the province’s COVID-19 guidelines, please say your farewell from the curbside while remaining at the designated areas. We ask that everyone ensure the safety of the family in mourning by practicing physical distancing, wearing a mask and staying inside if you aren’t feeling well.
COVID-19 has changed the ways we gather. Musqueam Council and Administration acknowledge that this is not ideal, nor is it consistent with the traditional ways we come together to remember loved ones. We understand how difficult this is for community, but we must remain diligent. Musqueam is doing our best to ensure members can still uphold cultural practices while maintaining everyone’s safety.
