Appointments and Masks Required at RDNO Facilities

Posted Friday, November 20, 2020

Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases throughout the province and in the Interior Health region, the Regional District of North Okanagan is adjusting operations to facilitate customers and staff safety. On Monday, November 23, many Regional District staff will be moving to a rotating schedule of staff working from home and in the office. Therefore, the RDNO Office will be moving to be open on an appointment-only basis. In keeping with provincial health orders, masks are mandatory at all RDNO indoor facilities.

RDNO trails, parks, and playgrounds remain open at this time, and users are reminded to maintain physical distance from other patrons.

“We have been so impressed by the respect that our customers have shown when they visit our offices. Many already wear masks in our office, and everyone has been mindful of keeping their distance in the lobby. These measures are not being put in place because of a lack of compliance, but rather to reinforce the behaviours we are already seeing,” said Ashley Gregerson, Communications Officer, RDNO.

People are encouraged to access our services online or over the phone, if possible. The RDNO will continue to adjust its response as the situation with the global pandemic changes.
