Mayor of Penticton, John Vassialki is welcoming tourists back to the city, following an announcement by B.C.’s Premier John Horgan.
Horgan and provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry today (June 24) said B.C. is at the point in the coronavirus pandemic where it is now ready to allow in-province travel. Phase 3 includes the opening of resorts and hotels.
Soon after the announcement, Vassilaki endorsed Horgan’s move to open B.C. up to provincial travel this summer.
“Penticton has always been a tourist destination for all seasons, especially in the summer. We look forward to welcoming guests back to our great city while maintaining provincial health guidelines and public safety.”
