Residents and visitors will soon be using hand sanitizer stations and travel tips to keep free of COVID-19 as they visit downtown Kelowna or Orchard Park Mall.

Downtown Kelowna and Tourism Kelowna have set up the stations in four locations with the goal to enhance public safety, according to a Downtown Kelowna news release.

The first station by the Sails statue downtown has been installed and the others will be distributed in the coming days. The four stations include the Queensway Bus Loop, The Sails, Kelowna Visitor Centre and at Orchard Park Shopping Centre on Highway 97.

“The health and safety of Kelowna residents and visitors is paramount as the pandemic continues. Working with the DKA on this important project is an effective way to continue spreading the COVID-19 safety guidelines set out by B.C. Health officials,” said Chris Lewis, director of visitor experience, in the press release.
