Creston, BC July 10, 2020: The Provincial state of emergency has been extended by the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, Mike Farnworth, until the end of the day on July 21, 2020 to support continued coordination of the COVID-19 pandemic response.
Support Local Business: Creston Valley’s business community is integral to its vibrancy and culture. As the Province progresses through the BC Restart Plan, let’s continue to show local businesses our support and appreciation for all they have done to adjust to the rapidly changing environment that COVID-19 has created. Some businesses closed their doors until they were able to safely re-open and others significantly changed their business model to meet provincial and federal health requirements.
Throughout this summer, take the opportunity to visit the many businesses that help make the Creston Valley our home. Enjoy a meal out with family, spend a Saturday morning visiting the Creston Valley Farmer’s Market, or simply tour through downtown and rediscover your favorite shops. Check out the “Show Local Love” campaign, a community based initiative developed by the Creston Valley-Kootenay Lake Economic Action Partnership, to showcase, support and promote local businesses across every industry in the Creston Valley-Kootenay Lake region.
