Boil water advisory impacts hospital

There is currently a boil water plan in place at Vernon Jubilee Hospital for creating potable water for the site and bottled water is being brought in

The boil water notice impacting Greater Vernon is also impacting the water supply at Vernon Jubilee Hospital.

There is currently a boil water plan in place at the hospital for creating potable water for the site and bottled water is being brought in.

“However, we are anticipating increased demand for water on Monday when weekday operations resume,” states a release from the Interior Health Authority.

“To ensure there is enough water for patients and staff and to continue regular operations while the boil water notice remains in effect, we are asking families and visitors to the hospital and staff coming on shift, if possible, to bring their own personal supply of potable or bottled water as an added conservation measure.”
