A rumour stating the corona virus has reached Clearwater was brought to our attention. We promptly contacted the local Interior Health Authorities and received confirmation that this was incorrect.
Some basic protective measures against the virus (released by the Office of the Provincial Health Officer & BC Disease Control):
- Regularly and thoroughly wash your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or water and soap.
- Maintain a social distance of at least 1 metre to anyone coughing and sneezing. Cover your mouth with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
- Stay home when ill, keep your children home when they feel sick.
The District of Clearwater is actively engaged with officials of Interior Health Authority and Emergency Management BC and will make further posts if the situation changes.
