May Events in Metro Vancouver

Add a Comment by Rebecca Bollwitt

They say, in these times of COVID-19, that April distance brings May existence. We’re heading into a time of year when the English Bay Slide would be sailed out of hibernation and we’d be fulfilling our camping reservations for the long weekend. With distancing measures in place, our late spring will definitely look different, but we can still have some fun thanks to creative folks who are still putting on May events in Metro Vancouver, ONLINE.

This month Miss604 is proud to sponsor BC Youth Week Online Events (May 1-7, 2020) and the YWCA Women of Distinction Awards which have been postponed — stay tuned for updates! This list is updated daily so check back often and feel free to send in your event for a free listing anytime.

If you must be out in the community, the Government of BC suggest you follow these simple tips to help prevent the spread of COVID-19

  • Wash your hands regularly.
  • Avoid touching your face, eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Cover your nose and mouth when coughing or sneezing.
  • Keep a physical distance of about 2 metres between yourself and others when you are out.
  • Avoid handshakes (wave instead).
  • Go to the grocery store only once a week, or less.
  • Send one household member on errands to reduce the number of potential exposures.
  • Exercise at home or in your neighbourhood.
  • Do not have visitors.
  • Wear a mask if you are sick with COVID-19 symptoms (especially coughing). If you are not sick, it may be less helpful to wear a mask.
