In the midst of an ongoing pandemic, it’s recommended, and even mandated in some places, that everyone wear a mask.

Though the list of things worse than wearing a mask is already lengthy, one resort in Campbell River believes they have one more thing to add to it.

“Wear the mask,” reads Oyster Bay Resort’s sign.

“It’s not like we’re asking you to wear a Flames jersey.”

The aptly-timed burn on the Calgary Flames has set the internet ablaze, as a photo of the sign quickly sparked attention all over social media.

Most notably, this includes an Instagram post on Hockey Night in Canada, where it has earned itself over 12 thousand likes – and growing.

According to the original post on Reddit, many Canucks and Flames fans alike have stopped to admire the sign work in person, too; hopefully masked-up, of course!

Though NHL hockey is currently on pause for the moment, the Canucks/Flames rivalry is alive and well as many former Vancouver players have signed to the Calgary team during free agency.

Goalie Jacob Markstrom, Chris Tanev, Josh Leivo and Louis Domingue joined the Canucks exodus to Calgary as free agents who have signed with the Flames after playing last season in Vancouver.

The 2020-21 NHL season is being targeted to start January 1st, 2021, the NHL and NHL Players’ Association announced back in October.

The estimated timing for the start of training camp will be announced at a later date.
