Revelstoke positive COVID cases grows to 29

As of Nov. 27, there are 29 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Revelstoke.

“Cases at this time have an average age in the low 30s,” reads a news release from Interior Health. “Additional cases are not unexpected as the public health investigation continues.”

They are recommending residents stick with public health direction, such as wearing a mask in public places, and respect health orders that are in place, such as avoiding non-essential travel.

“Cases in local business and industry will reflect broader cases in the community,” the news release says. “At this time, we have no public exposure notifications or outbreaks.”
