Getting some exercise in Garry Point Park has been made into a one-way affair to encourage physical distancing.
The City of Richmond has established one-way routes in the Steveston park and has created a map to show how people should walk to avoid coming in close contact with others.

Public health officials are asking everyone to keep two metres (six feet) away from other to limit the spread of COVID-19.
