This is a friendly reminder to the community that the social distancing measures ordered by the Provincial Health Office on March 31, 2020, are still in effect. This applies to all citizens in BC and the City of Dawson Creek must follow and assist in compliance. City bylaw officers across the province have the power to help enforce this order, through education and potentially gathering evidence of a violation. Citizens found in violation may face fines from the Province of BC under the BC Public Health Act.
Information on the Order given on March 31, 2020, along with a link to the most up-to-date list of COVID-19 Essential Services (that includes businesses), can be found under the Dawson Creek COVID-19 Resources page on the City website (www.dawsoncreek.ca). Other businesses may remain open as long as they can adhere to the other requirements put forward by the province with regards to social distancing.
The City truly appreciates current community efforts during these challenging times to reduce the spread of COVID-19, and your efforts are still required. Until new orders have been provided by the Provincial Health Officer, the City of Dawson Creek is asking citizens to continue to help bend the curve, not the rules.
