Mask Wearing Mandate

The Slocan Valley Co-op is observing the Provincial mask-wearing mandate announced November 19th for all public and retail spaces.

With the November 19th update by the BC Health Authority identifying the mandate for mask-wearing in businesses, the Slocan Valley Co-op has updated the COVID-19 safety precautions in its operations.



November 25, 2020 - *Updated February 22, 2021*

All employees, vendors, and customers are required to wear an appropriate mask in order to enter and receive service at our Co-op facilities. All guests entering our facilities will be expected to be equiped with their own mask in order to receive service. We otherwise have disposable masks available for $1 each (+GST). 

It is outlined on the Province-wide order that mask exemptions exist for people with health conditions who cannot wear one; people who cannot remove a mask on their own; and children under the age of 12 (see link to the Provincial Health Order below for full details and updates). To accommodate individuals with exemptions from wearing a mask, we provide the following services:

1)  We can arrange special call-in orders for curb-side service on select days. Curbside Service Leaflet

2)  The Passmore Volunteer Fire Department partnered with the Co-op in April 2020 to offer their volunteer service by providing delivery on Wednesdays and Saturdays of call-in orders with a minimum value to seniors and immunocompromised individuals.

For more information on these services, call our Slocan Park store at 250-226-7433. 

Our store is classified by Interior Health as a facility with grocery services, and is expected to observe the Interior Health COVID-19 Closure Order and Public Health Order mandates until further notice, and we thank everyone for their co-operation.
