The Mayor of Kamloops says it's important to follow the new public health mandate, as we are in the second wave of the pandemic.

“The City has made some changes in response to the new health orders that are very important for the safety of the public and staff while making sure that both the business of the City and the ability for the public to participate in City projects and Council meetings continues,” Mayor Ken Christian said in a release. “I urge everyone to follow the orders and limit their social interactions. We are in this together. It will take all of us.”

Residents are reminded that masks are mandatory at all indoor public spaces, no organized events or gatherings are allowed, and there are no group exercise classes.
