On July 28, 2021, the BC Government and Interior Health announced new health measures in the central Okanagan aimed at containing a COVID-19 outbreak in the area. REALTORS® are encouraged to review the measures announced and act accordingly, putting the safety of clients and their communities first.

Included in these new measures is a mandatory mask order in public indoor spaces for all people age 12 and over in Peachland, West Kelowna, the Westbank First Nation, Kelowna and Lake Country.

Non-essential travel to the region is also discouraged and the public is asked to be cautious when gathering indoors. Read the complete set of measures in the press release from Interior Health here.

While these new measures do not directly address or impact real estate, we encourage all BC Realtors, and specifically, those operating in the interior, to be considerate and cautious in your practice by continuing to the make health and safety of your clients a priority.

Since July 1, BC has been in Step 3 of BC's Restart Plan, and brokerages and REALTORS® should continue to follow WorkSafeBC's Communicable Diseases Prevention guidelines where other specific guidelines are not in place.
