Phase Two of the province’s restart and surgical renewal plans are in full effect.

The COVID-19 pandemic continues in B.C., which now poses questions from the public about how to safely return to some sort of normality without increasing the risk of another spike.

For residents within Northern Health’s jurisdiction, including Prince George, those questions will be answered this week by public health officials and regional politicians in another virtual town hall.

This is the second event of the same nature more than a month after the first town hall meeting on April 22, when the authority took questions, comments and concerns about COVID-19.

Northern Health CEO Cathy Ulrich and Interim Chief Medical Health Officer Dr. Raina Fumerton are scheduled to make a reappearance.

This time, Cariboo North MLA Coralee Oakes and North Coast MLA Jennifer Rice will host the town hall on behalf of the B.C. government. 

The meeting goes online tomorrow night (May 28) from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.

You’re asked to submit questions in advance via the provincial government’s website, where you’ll also find more information.

PrinceGeorgeMatters will be sharing the livestream and all other videos can be found on the province’s Facebook or YouTube pages.

As of this publication, there are 62 cases of the virus in northern B.C., including 61 recoveries and one in ICU.
