It’s a creative and simple visual reminder for people to maintain a distance of two metres from each other when enjoying Chilliwack’s trails and mountains.
Large signs depicting the silhouette of an eagle’s six-foot wingspan have recently been installed by the City of Chilliwack at various locations.
“This is 2m/6ft,” reads the sign. “Be COVID smart, stay two metres apart.”
It’s a clever idea featuring the massive raptor commonly seen throughout Chilliwack and the surrounding areas.
One of the huge, white signs can be found at the trailhead to Thom Creek Trail on Sylvan Drive. Another was installed along the Vedder Rotary Trail.
The eagle signs are just one way people in Chilliwack are trying to get the message out.
On March 30, the Chilliwack Firefighters Association shared a drone video showing two firefighters standing the recommended distance apart from each other holding a two-metre sign reading “I love you this much.”
