"Self-isolating" and "social distancing" have become normal words in our vocabulary and lifestyles over the past few weeks. With so much uncertainty right now, that craving for routine, normalcy, and social interaction is stronger than ever.
Salt Spring Island is always doing things a little different, Community is what they're known for. The Businesses on our Gulf Island continue to keep creative, inventive, and adaptable. We are seeing now more than ever how adaptable Island life can be as free deliveries, pick-up windows, and the words Zoom video become regular installations in our day. We wanted to use this space to highlight just a handful of the ways businesses and individuals around us are adapting the way they serve so they can continue providing routine and comfort through these unprecedented times.
