Waterbridge Ferries said they have also been doing their part to combat the spread of COVID-19 on its Adam and Arrow Lakes ferry routes.

“We have new procedures in place to mitigate the spread of illness on our ferries and at our terminals,” said Waterbridge Ferries in a statement.

“As a precaution, crews at our terminals and on board our vessels are taking extra measures to clean all touch points until the risk is contained.”

Some of the other ferry crossings in the Interior are located at Glade and Kootenay Lake.

Across the province, BC Ferries has also asked people to stay in their vehicles if they’re travelling on any of its routes.
