News Release - Chair's Statement on Discretionary Travel

On behalf of the Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) Board of Directors, Chair Ian Thorpe is urging all visitors, tourists and residents to avoid discretionary travel in the RDN including Gabriola, Mudge, and DeCourcy Islands. The Board passed a motion supporting this at yesterday’s Special Board Meeting.

“Travel should be discouraged unless it’s necessary,” said RDN Board Chair Ian Thorpe. “The more we can encourage people to stay home and self-isolate and not go out unless they need to, the better.”
