Hours are being trimmed at the outdoor COVID-19 testing and immunization centre located in the Kwantlen Polytechnic University parking lot in Langley during the current heat wave.
Starting today, Sunday, June 27, anyone attending for a first dose, or with booked appointments scheduled after 12 p.m. at the Langley clinic will be redirected to alternate clinics with cooler temperatures for immunization.
In Langley, the alternate clinic is at the Langley Events Centre.
Other sites implementing noon shutdowns are in Burnaby, Mission, South Surrey, Coquitlam, Surrey and Abbotsford.
A notice issued by the Fraser Health Authority said due to the extreme heat wave that is currently impacting communities across the region, it was implementing “temporary measures at a number of COVID-19 immunization and testing clinics as these sites are experiencing elevated temperatures.”
