Terrace Mayor Carol Leclerc says her city will not follow Prince Rupert's lead in declaring a State of Emergency at this time.
 
In a statement read from her home yesterday and distributed on the city's website and Facebook page, Leclerc said "the city of Terrace is not considering declaring a State of Local Emergency at this time -- the declaration by the province for their State of Emergency that has been put in place by the province is meeting the city's needs and council supports the province's request for a coordinated response."

She also reassured Terrace residents that her staff and council are working hard to keep the community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
 
"Council is here for you, the City of Terrace is doing everything we can to support this state of Provincial Emergency declaration; we have been participating in regular conference calls with the province, which is providing the mayors and CAO's (our chief administrative officers) with guidance on how best to respond to the many different aspects of this pandemic," she said.

Terrace Council cancelled its regular meeting this week, and doesn't plan to meet again until April 14th -- but Leclerc says staff  are still available through phone and email.
