Creston, BC – May 15, 2020: This May long weekend, residents of British Columbia are being asked to avoid unnecessary travel.  So stay local this weekend, enjoy the Creston Valley Farmer’s Market, visit the outdoor spaces in our beautiful Valley and remember that small campfires are allowed but other burning prohibitions remain in place.

Note that the Provincial Medical Health Officer issued an Order regarding COVID-19 Safety Plans that requires businesses to post a copy of their COVID-19 Safety Plan on their website, in addition to having it available at their worksite.

Partial In-Class Instruction to resume June 1, 2020: Parents will have the option of having their children return to school on a part-time basis this academic year as part of BC’s Restart Plan as of June 1, 2020 -  with the goal of returning to full-time classes in September 2020. To make sure schools are safe for students and staff, the number of students in school each day will be reduced, with most receiving in-class instruction part time. School districts will determine scheduling for classes and transportation arrangements. For kindergarten to Grade 5, this means most students will be able to go to school half time (such as alternating days), while grades 6 to 12 will be able to go to school about one day a week.
