Creston, BC, March 24, 2020: The Town of Creston is working closely with the Provincial government, the Interior Health Authority and the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) to monitor the COVID-19 situation. The Town’s Emergency Operation Centre has been running since March 14, 2020, following the Regional Emergency Program Response Plan, shared with the RDCK. During this time, it is vital that all local governments follow the lead of our Provincial and Federal governments.  The Town is focused on disseminating accurate and relevant information to our community and managing the provision of essential services.  

We have been noticing a social media post that suggests closing Creston Valley’s borders in response to the COVID-19 situation. There is no authority or legal ability by a local government, except by the direction of the Province, to prohibit the movement of people between Provinces, municipalities or communities.  Now is the time to be kind and in the words of our Provincial Medical Health Officer, “We need to take care of each other while staying apart.”
