COVID-19: City of Penticton’s online ‘toolkit’ aims to assist those seeking support

Included in the toolkit is a list of resources available across all levels of government

An online toolkit of local information and resources regarding COVID-19 has been published on the City of Penticton’s website.

Included in the toolkit is a list of resources available across all levels of government.

The City explained that whether you’re a worker who’s been laid off, a business facing hardship or an individual wondering if you’re eligible for financial support, this toolkit will show you what funding is being offered.

“The daily volume of newly released COVID-19 information can be overwhelming,” said Penticton Mayor John Vassilaki.

“By grouping many of the most recent and significant announcements into a single location, we’ve created a helpful and simple to use resource that all residents can turn to when looking for information during this health crisis.”

To access the toolkit, visit the city’s new website at www.penticton.ca/covid19toolkit. It will be updated as new information becomes available.

Want to speak to someone in person? Call the city’s Emergency Operations Centre at 250-490-2345.
