Revelstoke mayor says to stay calm, look after each other

As the situation changes, the city will communicate

The Revelstoke arena is now closed as are the hot tub, steam room and sauna, but Mayor Gary Sulz said the situation is continuing to change and the city will make more decisions as announcements come down from the provincial and federal governments.

“As of 9:32, that is where we are at, but 10:32 things could change,” Sulz said.

He would not reveal any details on emergency plans, though he said the city is working closely with the health authority.

“We are not trying to hide anything,” Sulz said. Adding that there was no sense giving out emergency plan information because it changes so quickly.
