March 23, 2020 - COVID-19

For Immediate Release: March 23, 2020

The District of Peachland has made the decision to close all playgrounds. The District is also asking the public not to use public benches, picnic tables and other hardscape surfaces as it is not effective for the District to disinfect these surfaces for public protection. This follows the District of Peachland’s decision last week to close municipal facilities to the public and suspend all Recreation Services.

COVID-19 is a Health Emergency. The District is following the daily recommendations from the BC Ministry of Health and the BC Centre for Disease Control. Response to this virus is fluid and information is changing daily. The District is committed to keeping up-to-date on the local, provincial and federal mandates. Any new information will be posted to

You can keep yourself and your loved ones healthy and safe by:
  • Maintaining social distancing – 2m separation
  • Do Not gather in groups outside of your household members
  • Washing/disinfecting your hands frequently
  • Limiting “touch” activities like Frisbee or ball
  • Staying home if you are sick
The District is still open but asks the public to perform business electronically or by appointment only:
