LETTER: Reader ‘dismayed’ at churches not following public health orders

‘I say that we need to put our trust and faith in good science’

Regading the news reports that two churches in Chilliwack are not respecting the [orders] of the BC Chief Medical Health Officer, I am quite dismayed that these church assemblies did not follow this advice. Members of these churches are also members of the community and we all have to be in this together- not just the rest of us. I recognize and agree with the fact that there are religious rights but there are also our responsibilities to each other.

I say that we need to put our trust and faith in good science and the best efforts of our public health officials to bring this pandemic to a halt.
