Bus service has resumed between Vernon and UBC Okanagan since the evacuation order has been downgraded to an alert.
Regular service for Route 90 is back up and running as of Monday, Aug. 21.
But the university advises only crucial trips to campus as it is not fully operational.
“Anyone returning to campus should have a plan to evacuate at a moment’s notice,” UBCO said in an alert Monday.
The Walroy Lake wildifre is still out of control but remains at an estimated 769 hectares.
Meanwhile the Regional District of North Okanagan (RDNO) says “there are no immediate threats to our region at this time.”
The RDNO continues to closely monitor the wildfire situation in the Central Okanagan and Shuswap and Emergency Operations Centre staff are conducting pre-planning, in preparation, “should we need to act quickly in the event of an emergency in our region.”
Residents are encouraged to be prepared in the event of an emergency and to stay safe by preparing an emergency plan and packing a grab-and-go bag (essential supplies and items for 72 hours). Visit PreparedBC.ca for more information.
