2020 10 30 EOC COVID-19 Bulletin 20 - State of Emergency-PHO-Social Interaction 
Posted October 30 @ 4:00pm

Message from Mayor (Updated October 30)

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. We anticipate that tourists and Snowbirds will enjoy visiting and living in our community during the winter. 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 will continue to use best practices in the town of Osoyoos to ensure the safety of all.
Mayor Sue McKortoff
