As COVID-19 concerns rise in the community. The City of Prince Rupert offers condolences to family of passed Acropolis resident and reinforces the coronavirus protocols for access to civic services

COVID-19 is by far the topic of conversation around Prince Rupert these days, the latest item of concern the news from Northern Health on Thursday of the passing of a resident of Acropolis Manor, with the Health Authority advising of the death related to a current outbreak that now reaches 38 residents and staff of the west side long term care facility.

Thursday night Mayor Lee Brain offered the condolences of the City and larger community through his civic  Facebook page, a forum which has also allowed for some residents to offer their own words of support for the family, as well as the residents and staff at Acropolis Manor.

Councillor Reid Skelton-Morven also made use of his Social media page to offer his thoughts on the news from Acropolis.

For the moment the two civic politicians are the only officials, whether municipal or provincial, to make use of their public social media options to take note of the sad news of the passing at the long term care facility.

Yesterday, the City of Prince Rupert offered a reminder to residents of the range of protocols in place when it comes to conducting business at City Hall and some of the options available for social distancing when it comes to civic functions.
