Poll: local mask mandate?

Due to a rapid increase in COVID-19 cases in the Central Okanagan in the past week, masks will once again be mandatory in all indoor public spaces in the region.

During a press conference Wednesday, Interior Health medical health officer Dr. Sue Pollock declared a new COVID-19 outbreak across the entire Central Okanagan region.

In the past week, about 240 new cases have been identified in the Central Okanagan, making up about half of the province's total new cases in that time period. A number of Kelowna restaurants have closed in recent days due to staff contracting the virus.

The new indoor mask mandate will go into effect in the Central Okanagan at midnight Wednesday. Masks will be required indoors in Kelowna, West Kelowna, Westbank First Nation, Peachland and Lake Country.
