Kamloops residents weigh in on their spring break plans

Staying put on spring break

With spring break around the corner for elementary and secondary schools, Castanet Kamloops took to the streets to ask what people have planned.

In a press conference last week, Dr. Bonnie Henry encouraged British Columbians to think small, and think local, when it comes to their spring break plans.

Residents said they were planning on taking walks through the park, skating and biking. One Thompson Rivers University student, who just had her reading break, said she did some cross-country skiing on her time off.

One person said it feels discouraging, especially with COVID-19 restrictions limiting activities, including children unable to see their friends outside of school.

"It's getting to the point where we're doing everything we're supposed to do, but we don't seem to be getting any further," she said.

"We usually go to Vancouver, but the aquarium is closed, we can't do much."
