Creston BC - May 19, 2020: Today, British Columbia moves into Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan. Restaurants, cafes and pubs, retail and personal service establishments, libraries, museums and galleries can start operating under enhanced protocols to ensure the health and safety of the community and staff. All businesses have been asked to put in place a COVID-19 Safety Plan, and have that plan available either on their website or posted at their worksite.
