A GARAGE/YARD OR

ESTATE SALE during the

pandemic? Absolutely! To do

so safely, use a roomy outdoor

space so people can browse

while safe distancing. Offer

hand sanitizer (and gloves?) to

your shoppers. Wear a mask

and gloves to be respectful

of your shoppers. When they

make a purchase, suggest

they either sanitize each item

before using or leave it to air

outside for a three day period

to eliminate any possible

germs. Keep those gloves on

to handle all cash, then wash

it or leave it to air for 3 days

before handling with bare

hands. It may be a lot of extra

work, but in the end it’s worth

it, and the bonus is you may

catch up with neighbours and

friends you haven’t seen in a

while, all while safe distancing

of course! Place your sale

ad in the Pennywise for as

little as $3.50/wk for 12 words.

website for the latest updates.

For those Indigenous students that attend

public schools, school districts will engage

with First Nations and Indigenous peoples as

a part of their Stage 2 plans.

Enhanced Health & Safety Measures

Schools will continue to be cleaned more

frequently, including classrooms and high

touch areas like door knobs, toilet seats, keyboards

and desks. Other changes include:

• Organizing students into learning

groups

• Increased spacing between students in

classrooms

• More individual and smaller group

activities

• Limitations on assemblies and other

large gatherings

• Parent Responsibilities

• Monitor your child daily

for symptoms

• Don’t send your child

to school if they are sick.

Anyone who is sick will not

be allowed in school

• Encourage your child to

minimize physical contact

with their friends

Student Responsibilities

• Wash your hands frequently,

including before

coming to school and

before and after eating and

breaks

• You will have access to

hand sanitizer when hand

washing is not available

• Label your personal items

and do not share them

Wearing Masks

Students and staff are not

required to wear masks in

schools. Wearing a mask is

a personal choice that will

always be respected

The Provincial Health

Officer (PHO) and the British

Columbia Centre for

Disease Control (BCCDC)

advise that masks are not

recommended for use by

young children. In young

children, masks can be

irritating and can lead to

increased touching of the

face and eyes. For older students

and staff, non-medical

masks will be provided

upon request for use in situations

where the person

is interacting with someone

from outside of their

learning group and cannot maintain physical

distance for an extended period of time. This

includes riding the bus to school where a student

may be sitting next to a person outside

of their household or learning group

Riding the Bus

The BCCDC public health guidelines for

schools include the following recommendations

for student transportation on school

buses:

• Buses should be cleaned and disinfected

in accordance with BCCDC

guidelines

• Buses should be loaded from back to

front and offloaded from front to back

• If space is available, each student

should have their own seat unless sharing

with a member of their household

• Middle and secondary school students

should wear non-medical masks,

• No student should be required to wear

a mask if they do not tolerate it

• Schools and school districts can consider

a transparent barrier to separate

the driver from the students

• Schools and school districts should use

consistent and assigned seating where

possible,

• Schools and school districts should

keep up to date passenger lists to share

with public health if contact tracing

needs to occur

Outside the Classroom/Extracurricular

Activities

Extracurricular activities in middle and

secondary schools including sports, arts

(including band and choir) or special interest

clubs can occur if physical distance can

be maintained between members of different

learning groups and reduced physical contact

can be practiced by those within the same

learning group.

Health and safety plans developed by

school districts and independent schools

will determine how extracurricular activities

will be implemented at schools. Inter-school

events like competitions, tournaments and

festivals should not occur at this time. These

events will be re-evaluated mid-fall.

Work Placements & Apprenticeships

School districts and independent school

authorities will assess and determine if it is

safe for students to remain on work placements

and apprenticeships. For work placements

that cannot continue in person,

districts and schools will determine if alternate

methods to continue learning or accumulate

volunteer hours for work placements

are possible. Students are encouraged to talk

to their teachers about work placements and

apprenticeships

School Meal Programs

School districts with existing meal programs

will continue to work with community

partners to provide meal support to families

in need, in alignment with current public

health guidelines.

SD8 bus registration,

apply now!

Bus registration for 2020/2021 school year

is now open! The deadline for registration is

September 4, 2020.

School starts Thursday, September 10th,

2020. All riders from Kindergarten to Grade

12 need to register annually, in order to have

a seat on the bus. Seats are limited and only

registered riders may use the bus service. Due

to space limitations some routes may have a

waitlist.

It is very important to maintain up-to-date

rider lists for drivers, especially in regards to

contact tracing during the pandemic. Please

register only if you will be a continuous rider

(3-4 days per week).

Please note that due to COVID-19, transportation

services may change (i.e. route

alterations, rider capacity etc.) and will be

communicated as soon as available on the

District website. Further information regarding

COVID protocols for riding the bus will

be posted on the District website.

Online registration is now available at

http://sd8.bc.ca.

Changing student demographics requires

the Transportation Department conduct a

review of the bus routes each year, and make

adjustments where required. Similar to previous

years, space on a school bus for the

2020/21 school year will be allocated first to

eligible riders.

The online registration form and information

regarding your catchment school website

is available on the District website. Once

approved by the Transportation Department

you will receive a confirmation email with

details of Bus route, stop time and location

for your student. Registration forms are also

available at your catchment school and from

school bus drivers.

Please read and discuss the Procedure and

Code of Conduct with your student before

you accept the expectations for school bus

transportation.

Bus Schedules can be found on the School

District 8 web page under the top tab/ Bussing

and Transportation. All bus alerts are

posted on the main page of the SD8 website;

hand sanitizer (and gloves?) to

your shoppers. Wear a mask

and gloves to be respectful

of your shoppers. When they

make a purchase, suggest

they either sanitize each item

before using or leave it to air

outside for a three day period

to eliminate any possible

germs. Keep those gloves on

to handle all cash, then wash

it or leave it to air for 3 days

before handling with bare

hands. It may be a lot of extra

work, but in the end it’s worth

it, and the bonus is you may

Children’s Blood

Lead Testing Clinics

Confirmed for

September

The annual Trail area children’s blood lead

testing clinics will take place in September.

All children aged 6-36 months in the Trail

area, including Casino, Oasis, Rivervale,

Waneta and Warfield are invited. In Trail,

the average blood lead level over the past two

years has been under 3ug/dL, the lowest levels

seen since testing began. Still, there is no

safe blood lead level.

In 2020, the Province of British Columbia

lowered the threshold to identify elevated

blood lead levels. The term used is “exposure

investigation level (EIL)” and for children’s

blood lead it is set at 5 micrograms /

deciliter. Annual testing allows the program

to understand our community better as well

as identify any children and families needing

additional care to lower blood lead levels.

With the province’s new, lower EIL, the

Medical Health Officer for the Trail Area

Health & Environment Committee (THEC)

reviewed historical data. “Blood lead levels

have decreased in most of Canada as

we removed lead from fuel, paint, cans and

other sources. In Trail, blood leads have also

decreased. Recent trends show that children

in Trail have similar blood lead levels to

the surrounding areas. Given this, I recommend

all children aged 6-36 months living

in Trail, Casino, Oasis, Rivervale, Waneta

and Warfield participate in the annual blood

lead testing clinic. However, parents in any

community in Greater Trail may request

blood lead testing for their child up to age 60

months.”

Voluntary blood lead clinics in Trail have

been taking place since 1991. The community

developed around one of the largest operating

lead / zinc smelters in the world. Living

next door to a smelter has created unique

challenges in terms of minimizing exposure

to lead in house dust and soil.

Many improvements to reduce emissions

from the smelter and address historical

impacts to soils have been made. The

Trail Area Health & Environment Program

(THEP) helps prevent children’s exposure

to lead via their programs. In addition to

improving local air quality, the program

focuses on providing tailored education and

supports directly to families. These may

include Healthy Home visits focused on easy

ways to keep the home dust-free, yard, garden

and lead safe renovation support. Healthy

Family visits focus on child development,

nutrition and prevention of exposure to lead.

Meghan Morris, the THEP’s public health

nurse advises, “Keep indoor dust down and

wash your children’s hands especially before

eating and after playing outdoors.”

Meghan adds, “This year the clinics will

look different as physical distancing health &

safety measures will be put in place. Despite

COVID-19, we hope all families in the community

will participate. The staff are working

hard to ensure a safe environment for testing.

Blood lead clinics provide ongoing information

on the health of our children as well as to

identify where we need to provide enhanced

support. This information is critical to the

success of the THEP.”

exposure to lead at thep.ca. Text your public

health nurse with additional questions:

Trail Council approves

RCMP downtown foot

patrol plan

Trail City Council recently met with

the Sergeant from the Trail RCMP to discuss

concerns associated with public safety

throughout the community, including Trail’s

downtown core and neighbourhoods. At

the meeting a number of options were discussed

to determine if enforcement could be

enhanced for the remainder of the summer.

Trail Council in consultation with the RCMP

have decided to activate semiweekly downtown

and public spaces foot patrols until

the end of September 2020. Trail Council

will fund the patrols from the Policing Services

Budget. The RCMP will report back to

council as part of keeping statistics in order

to monitor the impacts of this enhancement.

“The city takes our citizens’ concerns and

safety very seriously,” said Mayor Lisa Pasin.

“These are very challenging times and we are

very aware of the unwanted activity in our

city. Although increased foot patrols won’t

solve all the issues we are currently facing, it

is a proactive step in the right direction. We

appreciate the RCMP’s willingness to step up

and offer this service, and we are hopeful that

the increased police presence will help quell

some of the problems we are experiencing.”

The foot patrols will occur twice a week

in the evenings (one weekday and one day

on the weekend when operationally feasible)

and will consist of two RCMP members

working together as a team. These additional

foot patrols will supplement the RCMP’s

regular vehicle and foot patrol shifts already

being conducted and will rely on the officers

working overtime.

In addition to evening foot patrols, the city

is also seeking a cost proposal for daytime

patrols from the local private security company

that already provides evening patrol

service for the city. “Council will review and

consider this information at the upcoming

council meeting on Monday, August 17,

2020,” said Pasin. “Once the new patrols are

underway, the city and RCMP will review

and monitor the program. At the end of

September we will make a decision on how

to continue. In the meantime, we encourage

the public to remain observant and to

report criminal activity to the RCMP. We also

extend a huge thank you to our citizens for

their expressions of concern.”

Pitch your tech idea and win!

For the first time in Kootenay history, entrepreneurs and startups

from across the region will go head to head in the first ever

Kootenay Pitch Competition at the Nelson Innovation Centre,

hosted by KAST (Kootenay Association for Science & Technology)

and proudly sponsored by the Nelson & District Credit

Union.

• The competition is made up of three pitch events and a grand finale

event. The first pitch event will take place on November 5, 2020 with

applications due on September 24. Each pitch event will see four

entrepreneurs pitching their businesses in front of a panel of judges that

includes investors, technology experts, funding agencies and experienced

entrepreneurs.

• Not only will they compete for cold hard cash and amazing prizes

mentorship, networking, support and incredible exposure are all up for

grabs. The pitch events (November, January and March) will take place

in-person with a limited capacity due to COVID-19 at Nelson Innovation

Centre and also live-streamed so people can tune in from across

the province and beyond. The top 3 winners of each event will face off

in the grand finale pitch event in April 2021.

• All 12 accepted contestants will receive two hours of preparatory pitch

coaching from an expert, broken down into four 30-minute Zoom

meetings prior to the pitch competition; a 30-minute consultation with

Bruce Hardy, the local National Research Council of Canada Industrial

Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) advisor. NRC IRAP

provides advice, connections, and funding to help Canadian small and

medium-sized businesses increase their innovation capacity and take

ideas to market.

Would your acreage benefit from soil amendment?

Mercer Celgar is looking for landowners with 2 or more acres within 55 km

that would benefit from using their Celgrow soil amendment. Pastures and

hay fields are good options.

Mercer Celgar will cover the costs of a Qualified Professional performing

soil sampling, obtaining government authorization and delivery costs of Celgrow

soil amendment based on access with a large truck/pup combination.

Acreage should be able to accommodate at least 6 truck/pup loads. The two

major components of Celgrow are individual wood fibres lost from the pulping

process and surplus bacteria from the wastewater biological treatment

facility. Wood fibres enhance soil moisture retention and bacteria are a good

source of soil nutrients. The landowner is responsible for spreading and incorporating

Celgrow into their soil.

Interior Health issues

a drug alert

A drug alert was issued on August 14,

2020 and remains in effect at least until

August 21. The drug, sold as Down, was

tested at ANKORS. The test showed the

drug contains highly toxic amounts of

fentanyl+benzodiazepines. Description of

drug: purple/blue/pink pebbly substance.

Risk to users: overdose.

Interior Health advises that there are ways

to reduce your risk if you use drugs

• Get your drugs checked see service

information below

• Avoid using different drugs at the

same time or using drugs and alcohol

together.

• Don’t use alone or ask someone to

check on you.

• If you must use while alone, consider

using the Lifeguard app which can connect

you with 911 emergency responders

if you overdose. Download at the

App Store or Google Play.

• When using your substance start with a

small amount, and then go slow. Use at

an Overdose Prevention or Supervised

Consumption Site, if one is near you.

Service Information

Overdose Prevention/Supervised Consumption

Site /Drug checking is available at

ANKORS in Nelson, 101 Baker St. or find

another site by visiting www.drugchecking.ca

How to respond to an overdose: Call 911,

give rescue breaths and naloxone. Naloxone

Kits and Training are available at ANKORS,

101 Baker St. Nelson, through Interior Health

and at many sites across the province (see

https://towardtheheart.com/site-finder.)

COVID-19 science

& children

According to current worldwide data,

COVID-19 has a very low infection rate in

people 19 years old and under, and especially

low in children under the age of 10. Serological

tests have confirmed that in BC, less than

1% of all children tested have been COVID-

19 positive.

Studies show that most COVID-19 cases in

children originate from symptomatic adult

family members, not from peers. Even in

family bubbles, adults appear to be the primary

spreaders of the virus. Children who

do test positive for COVID-19 usually have

milder symptoms, such as a low-grade fever,

dry cough, and gastrointestinal issues.

What has BC learned from the reopening

of schools in other places?

Due to widespread, worldwide school closures,

there are few studies on the effects of

COVID-19 transmission in school settings.

• In places that have resumed in-class

instruction, children do not appear to

be the primary spreaders of COVID-19.

• In schools where there were confirmed

cases, there was typically minimal

spreading beyond the initial case.

Studies have shown that closing schools and

child care facilities has significant negative

mental health and socioeconomic impacts

on vulnerable children. At this time, it is recommended

that only people with symptoms

or people otherwise identified by a health

professional should be tested for COVID-19.

This includes children.

Daily screenings start at home. Ask these

questions:

• Does your child have the symptoms of

a common cold, influenza, COVID-19,

or other infectious respiratory disease?

• Has your child been outside Canada in

the last 14 days?

• Has your child been identified as a

close contact of a confirmed case or

outbreak?

If the answer is yes to any of these questions,

you must keep your child at home,

self-isolate, and seek care from a health-care

provider. For more information about Covid

in the context of the Province of BC, visit the

provincial government website www2.gov.

bc.ca. This site is updated regularly.

incredibly trying. To support our businesses,

the City of Castlegar, RDCK Areas I and J

Directors, Destination Castlegar, the Castlegar

& District Chamber of Commerce, and

a cross-section of business owners from different

sectors formed a Business Recovery

Committee which includes support from

Community Futures Central Kootenay. The

Committee’s action plan is being delivered by

the Chamber of Commerce which kicked into

high gear in March to provide the required

support to businesses.

“Our mission statement is to be the strongest

voice for local business, encouraging

a climate that enables business to prosper,”

states Tammy Verigin-Burk, Executive Director.

“We knew the key to supporting businesses

was to hear directly from them what

their needs are and to do everything we can

to support them.”

The Chamber surveyed as many businesses

as possible in May to gain an understanding

of the top issues and where help was needed.

Businesses told us the top issues were lack

of customers, lack of consumer confidence,

cost of personal protection equipment, and

employee recruitment. Five businesses were

in the process of closing due to COVID-19

and several businesses indicated they were

unable to open due to provincial health

orders, WorkSafeBC standards, lack of

employees, or fear of reopening. One of the

hardest hit industries was food and beverage

businesses. In order to support this industry,

the Committee launched an Eat Local Contest

to educate the community on our businesses,

increase customers, and provide an

incentive for eating at local restaurants. The

contest runs until September 8 so the community

still has time to enter. Contest cards

can be picked up at the Chamber.

With things changing rapidly as a result

of COVID-19, the Committee went back to

our businesses in August to determine what

is needed next. Initial results indicate the following

challenges:

• Loss of income/revenue

• Customers not following COVID-19

protocols

• Owner fatigue/burnout

• Lack of customers

• Concern for second wave

The information gathered from businesses

steered the direction of the next part of business

recovery which includes think & support

local and Be Smart (respect the COVID-19

rules) campaigns and additional direct support

to businesses through the Chamber. Stay

tuned for the exciting launch of these new

campaigns.

“Buying local is so important, and now

more than ever,” says Dale Donaldson,

Owner of Mallard’s Source for Sports. “We’re

seeing the direct result of consumers staying

close to home and if this trend continues I

can see another 1000 jobs locally. Every dollar

spent away from our community leaves

forever, while the ones spent here can last a

long time.”

“Local businesses are the backbone of our

vibrant community and the City of Castlegar

is doing what it can to support during these

unprecedented, tough times,” says Mayor,

Bruno Tassone. “This includes the Business

Recovery Committee, the open streets

pilot project, and creating a long-term economic

development strategy to support and

grow existing businesses and attract new

investment.”

The business recovery efforts will transition

into the five-year economic development

strategy being developed by Chris Fields and

team of Rynic. This work began pre-pandemic

but was delayed while the community

focused on immediate business recovery

needs as a result of COVID-19, Business and

community surveys will be launched later

this month to ensure everyone has a say in

creating a strong, stable and vibrant longterm

economy.

Climb for Alzheimer’s

For this year’s Climb for Alzheimer’s, the

ninth-annual event, we’re inviting British

Columbians to hike or climb a collective

70,000 kilometres that’s one kilometre for

each of the 70,000 people currently living

with dementia in the province! The event

began on July 21 and ends on September 21,

2020, which is World Alzheimer’s Day. From

the Summit Peak Trail in Fort Nelson to the

legendary Grouse Grind® in North Vancouver,

there are endless journeys you can take

to help reach our goal. Funds raised will help

the Alzheimer Society of BC provide support,

education and advocacy for families affected

by dementia, and enable research that will

advance knowledge of the disease.

Toadfest hops online:

you’re invited

The annual Toadfest event is hopping online this year

due to COVID-19, and you’re invited. The Fish & Wildlife

Compensation Program (FWCP), together with the

Province of BC, is hosting free Toadfest online sessions via

Zoom one for kids and one for adults. Get an update on the

ongoing work to help western toads at Summit Lake, check

out some cool videos and photos, and talk to a biologist.

The time to save on your calendar is Wednesday, August

26 Thursday, August 27. 12:30-1:30 pm. Please RSVP by

email to fwcp@bchydro.com. A link will be provided to

everyone who registers in advance, and a link will be posted

for each event at fwcp.ca/toadfest the day before.

Visit fwcp.ca/toadfest for more information or call

250-352-1300.

The online event for kids is designed for elementary

school-age students. It includes videos, songs, games, and

even an appearance from Toady, the Toadfest mascot.

The session for adults will focus on monitoring techniques

and mitigation measures implemented at Summit Lake and

the latest results, and you can test your knowledge about

western toads and other amphibians.

The online sessions are hosted by the FWCP with support

from the Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource

Operations and Rural Development. The FWCP is a partnership

between BC Hydro, the Province of BC, Fisheries

and Oceans Canada, First Nations, and public stakeholders

to conserve and enhance fish and wildlife in watersheds

impacted by BC Hydro dams.

volunteers, using safe protocols for low contact and low risk of

transmitting COVID.

We’re also working with local chefs and restaurants to provide

simple recipes to go along with the produce to offer fresh

ideas on how to use the ingredients each week.

Our health is tied to our environment. Focusing on food

security during the pandemic helps families and seniors eat

healthy local food and learn how to use it during the hardships

caused by COVID.

Andrew O’Kane is one of the volunteers in Trail who helps

deliver the bags of produce each week.

“I like it that we are supporting local organic growers by

purchasing their produce for four months straight. It’s been

great delivering the bags of vegetables, just getting out there

and seeing people, and also because although they all know

I’ll be coming, they are all pleasantly surprised when I arrive

every Thursday afternoon,” he says. “It’s a really practical

example of supporting food security in the Kootenays from

producer to consumer.”

You have an opportunity to help. Even one food box can

make an enormous difference between a happy family or a

hungry family. Sponsor a family today to help your neighbour

during Covid by visiting the EcoSociety website www.

ecosociety.ca/campaign/farms-to-friends/ or you can call

250-921-5497.

It’s about community pulling together. We can live better.

Two regional

women artists

featured in

Kootenay

Gallery

On August 28, the Kootenay

Gallery will open the first two

new exhibitions in our post-

Covid shutdown schedule. The

two shows share a theme of

the domestic from a feminine

perspective. The East Gallery

will feature the art of one of the

West Kootenay’s premier artists,

Susan Andrews Grace. In

the West Gallery, a retrospective

of the late Winlaw artist,

Ann Swanson Gross will be

offered. These exhibitions will

be up until October 31.

Poet and artist Susan

Andrews Grace has created

a body of work she has titled

Domestic Fetishes. Andrews

Grace says, “My fetishes are

power objects relative to the

world of an artist and woman

who has done a heck of a lot of

domestic work. These are not

the titillating fetishes of public

imagination but more akin

to the original fetish, an inanimate

object used for spiritual

purposes. Mine are made with

the female gaze in mind and

carry funny-bone benefits. They invite the collaboration of the

viewer in making sense of everyday objects and materials.”

The exhibition explores themes of marriage and domestic

life through a variety of media. The two dimensional and three

dimensional art objects are subtle, profound and occasionally

outrageous. Please be advised some elements of the exhibition

have a mature theme.

The second show opening on August 28 is Reflections: an Ann

Swanson Gross Retrospective. This show comes from the Slocan

Valley community where Ann spent most of her life up until she

passed away in 2018. The foundation of the exhibition is a collection

of works from Cindy and Richard Moser, which Cindy

donated to the Gallery, prior to her own death. Valley residents

Sam Simpson and Ann Harvey approached the Gallery about creating

a show of Swanson Gross’s work. The two have acted as the

bridge between the Slocan Valley community and the Gallery staff

to bring works to the gallery from a wide variety of friends and

family.

In lieu of an opening event, a come-and-go style Open House

will be held from 5 to 8 pm on September 25. To avoid crowding,

there will be no formal speeches and admittance to the Gallery

will be limited to 50 people at one time. Other COVID protocol

will be in place and masks are recommended. Everyone is welcome

to attend this free event.

Due to the pandemic, the Kootenay Gallery is currently open

limited hours, from 12 to 4 pm, Thursdays to Saturdays. The

Gallery is located at 120 Heritage Way, across from the airport,

between the Doukhobor Discovery Centre and the West Kootenay

SPCA.
