Sicamous’ announcement of the mask requirements comes on the heels of a similar announcement, made on Oct. 30 by the Columbia Shuswap Regional District, stating masks must be worn by all visitors in CSRD-owned public facilities, as well as in their regional offices and administrative buildings.

Other pandemic precautions have been in place at Sicamous’ municipal hall since it reopened to the public in May, after being closed during the initial stages of COVID-19. Other precautions include one-way entrance and exit to the building and regular cleaning of any high-touch surfaces.

District staff remain able to assist the public by phone or email at 250-836-2477 0r info@sicamous.ca.
