COVID-19 Community Update 66

Splatsin currently has 0 active cases and is under Alert Level 4: ‘very high’. Our new Pandemic Risk Level Chart came into effect on January 28. You can view it here. When we change Alert Levels, it is automatically in effect for 14 days to ensure stability before lowering levels (cases decreasing). The only time an alert level may be in effect for less than 14 days is if we need to increase it (cases increasing). Our current alert level (four: very high) is in effect until this Thursday, February 11. Watch this video from Kukpi7 thanking the community for efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19 so far.

Kukpi7 mentions contacting a doctor if you’re unsure about the COVID-19 vaccine. If you can’t see a doctor in-person, you can use the FNHA Virtual Doctor of the Day Program HERE.

There will be more information available soon regarding the COVID-19 vaccine. For now, you can read our vaccine FAQ page HERE.

Up until very recently, there were active cases in the community and this could return at any time. Kukpi7 & Tkwamipla7 are thanking you for your diligence to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Because of your efforts, Splatsin is fortunate to currently have no active cases.

Along with the Provincial Health Officer, Splatsin is asking you to continue to practice the following measures against COVID-19:

  • Limit gatherings to members of your household only. Do not host gatherings at your house or attend gatherings at other houses.
  • Avoid non-essential travel to other communities. You should only be leaving your house for work, medical appointments, or essential supplies such as groceries.
  • In public, wear a face mask and keep a physical distance of 6’ between yourself and others.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or use hand sanitizer when soap isn’t an option. Avoid touching your face until your hands are clean.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow.
  • If you’re sick, self-isolate in your room and call Splatsin Health Services at (250) 838-9538. After hours, call HealthLink BC at 811. If your symptoms are severe, call 911.
