COVID 19 Update - September 4, 2020

Creston, BC – September 4, 2020: This long weekend, as you have throughout the spring and summer, remember to balance fun with safety. Follow the Provincial Health Officer’s Orders and Recommendations, but find time to enjoy the beautiful community we call home.  As always, thank you for your hard work and commitment to reducing the spread of COVID-19 in the Creston Valley. 

COVID-19 Modeling: Yesterday, September 3, 2020, Dr. Bonnie Henry presented the latest modelling of COVID-19 in our Province. She notes that the modelling illustrates the importance of reducing transmission in order to ensure epidemic control and reminds us that we can reduce transmission through physical distancing, self-isolation when sick, hand washing and masking when appropriate.

Federal Funding to Support a Safe Return to School: Building on the Province’s $45.6-million investment to support a safe restart for B.C.’s schools, additional funding from the federal government will allow schools to expand health and safety measures, purchase more personal protective equipment (PPE) and increase capacity for remote learning. To support back to school, the federal government is providing 242.4 million in one time funding for the 2020-21 School Year.
