Sikh Temple RBCM
(Royal BC Museum)

These are some tough days Victoria, but there are still things to do! We have events for you, including some safe at-home options on Tuesday, September 15th.

Make sure you stay safe, and keep in mind Environment Canada issued a special air quality statement for Greater Victoria at around 11 p.m. on Thursday, September 10. Those conditions have persisted into Monday and could remain throughout the week.

As you head out to activities and events, please follow the restrictions and guidelines that these businesses require to keep their employees and patrons safe during the pandemic.

As always, wash your hands, wear masks, practice physical distancing, and stay home if you feel sick or show symptoms!

Without further ado, here are five things to do today, Tuesday September 15th:
