COVID-19 Update - April 16, 2021

Creston, BC April 16, 2021:  As the weather warms up the Town of Creston encourages residents to head outside with members of their household or core bubble to enjoy the trails, scenery and the Town as spring emerges.  Even while outside it is essential that we continue to be cautious  and follow the provincial COVID-19 health and safety guidelines.  As Dr. Bonnie Henry stated yesterday, “Even if we are outside we need to stay small and continue to use our layers of protection. […] Be purposeful about who you are seeing and where you are going, and stick with the same contacts.”
