For Immediate Release
January 6, 2021

SMITHERS – With the recent global rise of COVID-19 transmission, and the return of cold and flu season, the Town is working to implement mitigating measures for Town operations to promote community health. These include conducting public meetings virtually and encouraging virtual communications wherever possible.

The Town is committed to ensuring the health and wellness of staff and the community. Over the next few weeks, Town staff will be working hard to limit any potential service disruptions that may result from the rapid transmission of COVID-19. The Town will provide information on any such developments as and if they occur.

Mayor Gladys Atrill is issuing the following statement:

“The Town of Smithers staff are not immune to the health risks that we are all currently facing, though we want to assure you we are doing our best to maintain business as usual. If the time comes that we can’t, we will let you know. 

If you experience a disruption to service or see anything requiring the attention of our staff, please let us know. We ask you to do everything you can to stay healthy and to be patient as many businesses and services are experiencing staff shortages due to COVID-19 and other illnesses.”
