The Mayor and Council continue to monitor the issue closely and convened at Town Hall yesterday (March 23) and received an update/briefing from the Osoyoos EOC team.
Also that day, the Mayor participated in a conference call with the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing and Public Safety and Solicitor General and Mayors from throughout BC to discuss and reinforce the need for a coordinated Federal, Provincial and Local response to the pandemic. The BC Mayors were requested to follow and support the advice and orders from the Provincial and Federal Health Officers and senior governments. The Mayors were assured that the Province of BC will act with the Federal Government to coordinate all essential services and provide a coordinated response. It was noted that the declared Provincial State of Emergency applies to all areas of the Province and local authorities were requested to give careful consideration to any thought of declaring a local state of emergency within their jurisdictions to avoid conflicting regulations and requirements.
