Saanich South Community Office & COVID19

Dear Saanich South Constituents

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Saanich South constituency office will be closed to the public Monday March 16th until the pandemic situation becomes more positive.
My amazing constituency staff will continue working to support Saanich South, and can be reached via email or phone 9am – 4pm, Monday through Thursday.
As you can imagine our office is quite busy at this time so please leave a message if we do not pick and we will call you back - Saanich South Constituency Office 250-479-4154
We are monitoring the situation closely and will use current advice for public health best practices as it becomes available. While this is not our preferred way to operate our constituency office, we must do what is best for the health of our staff and community.
If you feel like you are having symptoms and may have been exposed to COVID-19, please call HealthLink BC, 8-1-1 or for the deaf and hard of hearing, call 7-1-1 to arrange for safe testing. 
811 is available in 131 different languages upon request and should be the first place anyone concerned about symptoms or questions should go.
Heathlink BC is also a good online resource:…/coronavirus-disease-covid-19

Thank you so much for your understanding, we will get through this together.

A total of 109 spaces will be in Saanich South at Cordova Bay, Marigold and Lochside elementary schools – plus – Saanich Neighbourhood Place is adding 49 spaces to its child care facility.
