COVID-19 Update - April 28, 2020

Creston, BC – April 28, 2020: The flags at Town Hall are being flown at half-mast today for the National Day of Mourning. The National Day of Mourning is dedicated to remembering those who have lost their lives, or suffered injury or illness on the job due to a work-related tragedy. Today, we encourage you to take a moment to honour those who have lost their lives, been injured, or fallen ill on the job.

Industrial Camp Order: The Provincial Health Officer issued an Order to Persons who Employ Workers in the Agricultural, Aquacultural, Forestry and Resource Sectors and/or Who Provide Accommodation for them in an Industrial Camp or other Congregate Setting Including a Motel, Hotel, or Tents.

Actions include, but are not limited to:

  • developing a COVID-19 Prevention and Control protocol,
  • maintaining high levels for accommodation, worksite and hygiene conditions
