The City of Quesnel will be resuming in-person council meetings on July 7, 2020.

The city announced the decision Monday morning, July 6, and said in a continuing effort to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, public health and social distancing precautions have been put in place within City Hall to ensure the safety of the public, council and staff.

Meeting rooms and council chamber occupancy limits have been established and signage has been placed in all gathering areas identifying how many persons can be in a meeting room, gathering area or council chambers at one time.

Council chambers will allow for seven council members and 20 gallery attendees for council meetings.

The gallery occupancy numbers include members of the public, media and city staff in attendance.

Access to council meetings will be made to the public on a first-come-first-served basis.
