The Thompson-Nicola Regional District is closely monitoring the information provided by Federal and Provincial agencies regarding the COVID-19 outbreak and is collaborating with other municipal governments to provide updates.
The TNRD will continue to take a proactive approach and has a business continuity plan which is being reviewed and enacted as the situation evolves. The Emergency Operations Centre will support the activation of the plan and respond if needed.
For the health and safety of residents and TNRD staff, we strongly encourage the public and our clients to limit their in-person contact with TNRD staff to essential services only.
