Creston, BC – September 15, 2020: As we all return to work and school after summer holidays, it’s important to continue practicing our COVID-19 health and safety measures. As Dr. Bonnie Henry states, “we must hold steady with our layers of protection. From keeping safe distances, to washing our hands, staying home, and staying away from others when we are ill and have symptoms of COVID-19, we must all do our part.” So on behalf of Town of Creston Council and staff, thank you to all the Creston residents who are working to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
