The District of Lake Country is following the lead of many other municipalities around the BC Interior and implemented a mandatory mask rule at district-operated facilities.
Effective Monday, Nov. 9, masks or face coverings will be mandatory at Lake Country Municipal Hall, Creekside Theatre, Winfield Arena, Beasley Community Centre and the Wastewater Treatment Plant/Septage handling facility as well as the Municipal Hall lobby access to the Lake Country Library branch of the ORL.
"Masks are required when entering public facilities and when moving through shared spaces like lobbies, hallways, as well as arena changerooms and spectator areas for one parent/care giver per participant," said officials in a release.
Unless a barrier is in place, District staff will wear masks when interacting with the public both indoors and when in close physical proximity outdoors.
On Wednesday, Interior Health announced 15 new cases of COVID-19, including outbreaks at a long-term care home in Kelowna and a resort in West Kelowna.
