On the return ferry he changes into a fresh set of clothing and seals the ‘soiled’ clothing in a garbage bag for washing that evening. At this time we’re accepting requests for vital cargo (food / drugs / pet food, etc..), reasonably vital cargo enabling islanders to continue in maintenance mode (appliances, plumbing, roofing, etc) or assist in becoming more self-sustainable (generators, green houses, etc..) We will not be accepting cargo for renovations / upgrades or furniture and ask that you not order such things at this time. Because of social distancing we will only be offering curb side drops (ie. As close to the destination we can get with the truck). In some cases we may be able to deliver to door if able to be done by our driver (ie. Level ground to door). Canpar / DHL / Loomis / Fedex ground will continue as usual but will be left at the door with no signature required.

Appointments times will not fall on regular intervals so please double check your times. 2) Bring a mask or face covering for use while in the building.
