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.
At the beginning of last week there was only chatter about COVID-19 and by Friday events were shutting down and businesses were announcing precautionary measures, Sulz said.
“We will put out statements as we move forward,” he said.
The best thing to do is be calm, self isolate and look after each other, Sulz said.
So far changes to services and cancellations so far in Revelstoke include:
- Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre
- Community Connections
- Revelstoke Grizzlies
- Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club lodge
- Soup and a Smile at the Revelstoke United Church
As well as others.
