Mayor Acton would like to take the time to thank you for your patience while dealing with this ever changing world. Please be kind, helpful and courteous with all business owners and their staff working to get their businesses up and running, and be patient if you are having to wait in a line. These new regulations are set out by WorkSafeBC and the Province, so please be respectful of the physical distancing rules being put in place in all businesses. Please stay safe, keep your distance, wash your hands and stay home if you are displaying any signs of illness. Remember that it is allergy season, so not everyone with a sniffle is contagious.
