BACKGROUND:

With Coronavirus now declared a global pandemic, precautions are beginning to take place in Terrace in fear of further spread of COVID-19.

So far, the B.C. government has banned all events and gatherings that include more than 250 people amid growing concerns and a travel ban is in place for Canadians that require those returning home from overseas to self-quarantine themselves for two weeks.

Shoppers in the Terrace area will find that store shelves are already running low on particular items like toilet paper, beans, flour and water.
