COVID-19 PANDEMIC UPDATE – CITY OF NELSON


Nelson, BC –  The Provincial Government has provided a COVID-19 update to the residents of BC. This update states that all “personal service” establishments such as spas, salons, massage services and tattoo shops are to close, if they haven’t already done so. The government also reiterated that restaurants are to stop providing sit-in dining service and move to a delivery and take-out model only.

“All Nelson restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, bakeries and such, must now have moved to a delivery or take-out model.” says Len MacCharles, Director of Nelson Emergency Management. “And it goes without saying at this point, that businesses and patrons need to maintain social distancing and conduct frequent hand washing – we all need to do our part.”

For safe food handling, see the BC Centre for Disease Control for more information for food businesses.
