Creston, BC – August 11, 2020: The COVID-19 cases over the summer months in BC are a reminder that vigilance is required to flatten the pandemic’s curve. Town of Creston Council and staff ask that citizens continue to follow the advice of the provincial and federal health authorities. In the words of Dr. Bonnie Henry, “fewer faces, larger spaces, ” make sure you avoid crowded areas, wash your hands, maintain a physical distance of two meters or six feet from those outside your bubble and stay home if you are unwell. As always, kindness and patience towards each other is key to moving through this pandemic together. Thank you Creston for your part in reducing the spread of COVID-19 in our community and beyond.
