COVID-19 UPDATE – March 28, 2020

March 28, 2020  |  News, Public Notices

The Village of New Denver continues to work closely with partner agencies to ensure the best possible outcome for our residents.  In addition to the Orders from the Provincial Health Officer designed to reduce the spread of the virus (details here), there are now Orders from the Solicitor General that are intended to maintain supply chains and protect consumers (details here).  The Federal Government has also taken actions to protect the health of Canadians (details here) and to provide economic relief to those in need (details here).  The BC Centre For Disease Control remains the best source of general information about the COVID-19 virus.

Residents are advised that there is currently a ban on Open Burning in the area served by the New Denver & Area Volunteer Fire Department.  This ban is in effect until April 15th, but does not apply to campfires (less than 2 feet by 2 feet, and contained in a pit or ring) at this time.

All Village-owned buildings remain closed to the public.  Parks and trails remain open, and residents are encouraged to enjoy these options while maintaining physical distance of at least 2 meters from anyone not in their household.  Staff at the Village Office remains available to answer questions and provide phone and email service during regular office hours.
