Home / COVID-19
Our number one priority is, and always has been, the health and wellness of our community. Splatsin is committed to ensuring vital member services and programs continue during the pandemic. The Secwepemc Nation is currently under a declaration of a State of Emergency.
Staff at Splatsin continue to work effectively and healthily from both our offices and at home. This is an effort to reduce the number of people in facilities at the same time and help protect the community against COVID-19. The following protocols are currently in place.
All visits to any Splatsin facilities are by appointment only. If you would like to make an appointment, call the Band Reception at (250) 838-6496 or visit the staff contact page.
Upon arrival at Splatsin facilities, visitors be prompted to sign a contract tracing form. Visitors also need to wear a mask and use hand sanitizer before entering a building.
If you are sick, stay home and call the Splatsin Health Centre and speak to a Community Nurse. Do not visit Splatsin facilities when you are sick.
Many services and programs are still possible over the phone or other communication technology. This is the preferred method whenever possible.
