COVID-19 Community Update 87

There is one COVID-19-positive individual on-reserve and 12 in self-isolation.

Only 62.5% of band members living on-reserve have been fully vaccinated. Enderby is also below the provincial rate at 67%. The provincial vaccination rate is 77%. The vaccine, combined with preventative measures, is your best defence against COVID-19:

  • Wear a face mask in public.
  • Wash or sanitize your hands often.
  • Keep a physical distance of 6’.
  • Stay home if you’re sick and call Splatsin Health Services, your Doctor, or HealthLink BC at 811.

Splatsin Health Services is operating at a limited capacity during this latest exposure largely due to nearby virus-related school closures, forcing some of their staff to be at home with their children. All vaccinations and testing are being re-routed to nearby Interior Health primary care facilities until further notice. Our health team will continue to assist COVID-19-positive individuals and individuals in self-isolation living on-reserve in our community as per the provincial health orders.

Individuals 12 and older are encouraged to get vaccinated. Most COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and ICU visits involve the unvaccinated. Approximately 86% of ICU patients in BC are not vaccinated. Book your free vaccine appointment by visiting clicking here or by calling 1-833-838-2323. For those members who are double-vaccinated, there will be booster shots arriving in our community in December. Watch our website and social media channels for more information,

Splatsin understands that vaccine confidence can be challenging among community members, and we want to acknowledge the historical reasons and trauma that have contributed to this. However, it is very important that we work together to protect the community.
