COVID-19 Update 84

There are 15-20 active COVID-19 cases in our community and 20-25 individuals are in self-isolation. Events and gatherings are suspended until further notice to help stop the spread.

*Kukpi7 mentions 20-25 active cases. New data has become available making this number 15-20 active cases.

Splatsin Health Services is working closely with Interior Health to inform individuals who have been exposed to the virus, and to monitor and provide support to those in self-isolation. If you have been ordered to self-isolate, you must stay at home in your bedroom for 14 days. If you experience cold or flu-like symptoms, self-isolate in your bedroom and call Splatsin Health Services during the week between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at (250) 838-9538. After hours, call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 or use the online assessment tool here.

Kukpi7 & Tkwamipla7 and Splatsin staff are working diligently to ensure the health and well-being of our community, and that vital services and programs continue. At this time, only staff can enter Splatsin buildings.

We must continue to practice preventative measures to protect our elders and most vulnerable people. In public, wear a mask, sanitize hands, and keep a physical distance of 6′. At home, wash your hands with soap and water often, sanitize surfaces, and gatherings should only be with the people of your household.

COVID-19 Vaccine

The vaccine is a strong layer of protection when used with other preventative measures. Data shows that fully vaccinated individuals may not get as seriously sick if COVID-19 or the Delta variant is contracted. Over 90% of hospitalized cases in Canada are unvaccinated or partially vaccinated individuals.

Visit the Government of B.C.’s online booking system here or call 1-833-838-2323 to book your vaccine appointment. There are also drop-in clinics available, see a list of upcoming clinics here. There are also drop-in clinics every Friday at the Enderby Senior’s Centre from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

If you are hesitant about the vaccine for any reason, call your Doctor or Splatsin Health Services to speak with one of our Registered Nurses. (250) 838-9538 on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
