COVID-19 Community Update 58

Splatsin has received confirmation from Interior Health that all members who were asked to self-isolate due to exposure to a COVID-19-positive individual are healthy and no longer required to self-isolate. As we are now in the second wave of the pandemic, band members are asked to be vigilant and follow these guidelines to continue to help protect the community against COVID-19:

  • Gather only with your household
  • No public gatherings or events
  • Keep track of who you are in contact with regularly
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for 20 seconds
  • Wear a face mask and practice physical distancing (6 meters) in public

If you experience flu-like or respiratory symptoms, contact Splatsin Health Services during the week between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at (250) 838-9538. After hours or if you cannot get in touch with Splatsin Health Services, contact HealthLink BC at 811 to speak with a Registered Nurse. If your symptoms are severe, call 911.

Message from Kukpi7 Christian:

“Kukwstsmac to our people for doing what was needed to keep yourself, loved ones and each other safe, and to our health team for providing all the necessary services despite of the rules of government and FNHA. We must remain on guard and listen to the advice from the Public Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry. We are in the second wave of COVID right now.

Limit your travel only when necessary travel; keep physically distance 6 feet; keep emotionally and socially connected to your family and friends, no gatherings; wash your hands; if feeling sick stay home; wear a mask in public areas. Keep yourself, your loved ones and your friends safe.”
