[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Update - April 22, 2020

Creston, BC – April 22, 2020:  Today, Dr. Bonnie Henry reminded us to stay home if we are ill, whether we have a cold, think it’s just allergies, or suspect we have COVID-19. Town of Creston Council and Staff would like to re-iterate this to the residents of Creston Valley. Too often we "push through" when we aren’t feeling well, but in doing so, we put those around us at risk. Remember, if you need medical advice contact your family doctor or HealthLink BC (811).

Interior Health Virtual Town Hall:  On Thursday April 23, 2020, people living in the Interior Health Authority region can have their COVID-19 related questions answered, through a virtual town hall presented by the Government of British Columbia.

Watch live on the Government of BC Facebook page on Thursday, April 23 at 7:15-8:15 PM PDT. Submit your questions in advance at:

Online engagement tool for Columbia Basin Trust CIP/AAP grants: Public engagement is an integral part of the Columbia Basin Trust Community Initiatives and Affected Areas Program Funding (CIP/AAP) process. Normally, public input into the grant awards would be received at community meetings held throughout the region every April. Due to the current restrictions on public gatherings, staff from the Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) have worked closely with Columbia Basin Trust to develop an online engagement tool to ensure the grant process moves forward. This tool will allow the public to give their feedback on proposed projects for the area in which they live.

  • Please note that the online engagement tool is not a voting system, but a way for the public to provide their feedback on projects they feel are most important to the area they live in. Once collected, all feedback will be shared with each area’s adjudication committee for their review and consideration.
  • The public engagement period takes place May 1, 2020 at 8:00 am to May 11, 2020 at 4:30 pm. 
  • To participate in the public engagement process, please visit the RDCK website at after May 1.  
  • View press release on the RDCK website
