Risk Mitigation

FWA’s COVID Risk Mitigation Plan & Policy

Here at FWA we take the responsibility of the safety of our guests and staff very seriously. To keep everyone as safe as possible we are implementing some changes to our policies and company procedures. We will be following all the BC Health Authority and WSBC regulations regarding COVID 19 safety to mitigate the risk. These procedures will be updated as needed.

PLEASE NOTE: Guests will be required to bring their own non-medical mask. Buffs are not considered an acceptable mask.

  • Physical distancing (2m/6ft) will be encouraged whenever possible
  • Masks will be worn when physical distancing is not possible
