Easter eggs

Though it may not be quite the same as past holidays, this Easter, Passover or any other event can still be filled with love, fun and celebration while we keep things safe for ourselves and each other.

Parks & Recreation Release

With Easter, Passover and other celebrations hopping up on us next month and beyond, we need to stay vigilant with our COVID-19 protocols.

Though we all know things need to be done differently these days, that doesn’t mean we can’t continue to enjoy tradition. 

For some ideas on things to do this Easter, check out our online programming suggestions. Museum of Surrey is also hosting Easter-themed visits on the weekend.

Select Recreation Centres are also open during the Easter long weekend, with limited programming and hours. Pre-registration is required for all in-person activities.

Connect Outside

As per the latest provincial health orders, we are able to now gather outdoors in groups of up to 10 people. However, these need to be the same consistent group of 10, do not gather with several groups of new people. Please continue to maintain a physical distance of at least 2 metres (6 feet) from others. 

Our parks are the perfect place to connect outdoors with your bubble this Easter. Review our list of Surrey Parks to find one near you.

Connect Virtually

While we are unable to connect face-to-face with people in our broader family and friend network right now, multiple households can connect for a virtual celebration or for activities like Easter egg painting using video app chat technology.

Faith-based Services

The variance allowing indoor religious gatherings and worship services between March 28 and May 13, 2021 is suspended. Services must take place outdoors or virtually this year, as per provincial health orders.

 

Some of us might be used to partaking in a big family or neighbourhood egg hunt but the Easter bunny is following physical distancing rules this year, too. So be sure to look for goodies close to home and then share your finds and excitement through text or your favourite social media channels. 

Most importantly, don’t forget about the people in your life who may be feeling extra isolated this holiday. Reach out to them for a chat whether by phone, text, email or video. You could even have some special groceries or a meal delivered to their home to let them know they are in your thoughts.  

Though it may not be quite the same as past holidays, this Easter, Passover or any other event can still be filled with love, fun and celebration while we keep things safe for ourselves and each other.
