GINTA – Doing the right thing for the community counts more than ever

THE WEEKDAY 3:00 P.M. UPDATE ON COVID-19 is this weird event that we all dread and yet cannot wait to hear. We are all hoping to see that curve take a downturn or at least flatten rather than hear about yet another higher-than-expected count.

I know, there’s hope yet. Plus, as many of us living here say, Kamloops is doing so well. Yes, we are. There’s no magic involved either.

Most people wear masks in stores and they use sanitizer or wash their hands more often. It works. I’ve seen a couple of people head into larger stores and then promptly exiting with a huff when being told they have to wear a mask.

However, some of the small local stores seem a bit hesitant to remind customers of these basic precautions. Let’s be proactive and do our part, because that means supporting them and supporting ourselves by keeping our local economy alive and thriving.
