To help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19, the City of Campbell River has been holding council meetings electronically.
It’s been using video conferencing and webcasting for public viewing.
The city says it will soon introduce modified attendance, with some members of council returning in-person to meetings starting August 31st.
“Given the limited space in council chambers and physical distancing requirements, some members of council and staff will continue to attend electronically,” the city says.
With a focus on safety, the city is also developing a plan that will “accommodate in-person delegations for people unable to make presentations electronically.”
Limited in-person public attendance is set to resume in September or October, with new safety protocols in place to help reduce the potential to spread the virus.
The city adds that advisory committee meetings will also resume, at first electronically.
