[ARCHIVED] COVID-19 Update - April 8, 2020

Creston, BC - April 8, 2020:  We have good news tonight Creston - earlier today our Premier, John Horgan, authorized a special essential service “eggs-emption” for the Easter Bunny.  This exemption will allow the Easter Bunny to travel freely into and throughout the Province. Extra precautions will be taken to ensure safe egg-delivery over the weekend and the Easter Bunny is excited to spread cheer and positivity.  

New measures support returning British Columbians: The Province is introducing new measures to make sure British Columbians returning home from international destinations have the support they need to self-isolate and keep their communities safe from COVID-19. The measures, which include a new legal requirement to provide a self-isolation plan, support the provincial health officer’s travel orders and reinforce the federal emergency order under the Quarantine Act requiring people entering Canada to self-isolate for 14 days. For more information on the changes upon border arrival please visit:
