From farmers’ markets to the Victoria Rail Trail, there are a few restrictions being lifted by the city as it continues to monitor the rate of COVID-19 spread.

“This entire situation hasn’t been easy on anyone, but we did what needed to be done to put the health and safety of residents and employees first,” says Mayor Andy Letham in a media release.

“After working through some of the challenges, council and I are pleased to share that we can start to lift restrictions on some services and take advantage of the better weather and the outdoors.
