The District of Peachland is issuing a letter to residents regarding the COVID-19 pandemic.
Going forward, the district will be cancelling unnecessary municipal meetings, asking residents to make inquiries to the district over the phone and offering refunds to residents for event cancellations to help avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Local events will be looked at by the district on a case-by-case basis in regards to if cancellation is necessary in regards to COVID-19.
The district stated washing your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, staying at home if you’re sick and avoiding contact with other sick people are some precautionary measures residents can take against COVID-19.
If any resident has COVID-19 symptoms, the district said it strongly encourages them to call 8-1-1 for a medical assessment.
