BC Ferries has cancelled more sailings between Tsawwassen and Swartz Bay in response to COVID-19 fears affecting demand.
The noon ferry leaving Swartz Bay on Tuesday, March 17 and Wednesday, March 18 will be cancelled, plus the 2 p.m. leaving Tsawwassen on both days as well.
All customers with reservations on cancelled sailing will have their reservation fees fully refunded.
Dr. Bonnie Henry said Monday BC Ferries passengers will soon see regulations that allow drivers to remain in their vehicles during sailings as a preventative measure against the spread of the virus.
On changes to @BCFerries: People will be able to stay in their cars to slow COVID-19 spread. Will require feds to change regulations that currently do not allow people to stay on the bottom (enclosed) vehicle decks. @BlackPressMedia
