We’re all on the front line . . .

We’re all on the front line and
we cannot be complacent.

This is a reminder that while many of us remain self-isolated in relative comfort, COVID-19 is devastating hundreds of homeless and at-risk individuals here in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside (DTES), as well as thousands of healthcare workers, carers, individuals and families across the street, the province, Canada, and around the world.

We all know the rules, we just need to follow them.

Stay informed

Wash your hands frequently and thoroughly

Avoid touching your face

Limit your contact with others

Respect physical distancing

Stay inside as much as possible

Support others where you can

Allow others to help you, too
