2020 08 25 EOC COVID-19 Bulletin 19 - State of Emergency-Exposure Control-Bylaw 
Posted August 26 @ 12:30pm

Message from Mayor (Updated August 26)

The State of Emergency in British Columbia has been extended once again so our EOC in the Town of Osoyoos continues to work with our provincial and federal governments and health officers to keep our community safe. We monitor the COVID-19 situation on a daily basis and ensure that we pay attention to WorkSafeBC and Interior Health protocols.
 
We have welcomed a lot of tourists this summer which has helped many of our local businesses enjoy a busy season. Thank you all for continuing to take the critical steps to keep your families, friends and yourselves safe and healthy. Please continue to wash your hands often, stay at least 2 meters away from others, and stay home when you are sick. I encourage you to wear masks when you are not able to keep a social distance, and when you are inside businesses.
 
We certainly hope that a vaccine will be developed soon, but in the meantime, look after yourselves and your loved ones, and know that we are continuing to use best practices in our Town to help all of us work through this stressful time.
Mayor Sue McKortoff
