Village of Lumby Response to COVID-19

lumby

In an atmosphere that is changing hour by hour the Village of Lumby is very conscious of the health and well-being of our residents and staff while doing everything possible to support local health officials as they work to contain the virus. As with all of you, we will continue to monitor direction from the Federal and Provincial governments as the situation changes.

Currently the Village of Lumby has closed the White Valley Community Centre and the Pat Duke Arena to the public until further notice. The Village will continue to follow orders from the Provincial Health Authorities as they come in, so this situation could change rapidly.

Mayor Acton would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we all traverse these trying times. Please remember to be mindful of the social distancing protocols, remember to wash your hands regularly and not touch your face. The best way we can all help one another and limit the spread of this virus is to shop local, limit our movement to other communities, self -isolate if you have been travelling, and contact elderly family members or friends to remind them they are not alone and offer assistance if they need it.
