Gordon United Church in Langford has had to cancel a concert planned for Saturday due to a COVID-19 outbreak among the band members.

The West Shore Community Concert Band was set to play at the church from 7 to 9 p.m. on Oct. 22.

COVID-19 restrictions have now largely been lifted in all aspects of society, including for international travellers, although the church still requires people to wear masks at services.

COVID-19 case rates have shown signs of spiking as fall settles in. Speaking with the Canadian Press, Dr. Theresa Tam said the Public Health Agency of Canada is keeping a careful eye on the evolution of Omicron variants, which are the most common subvariants in the country.
