COVID-19 Update 85

There are 0-5 active COVID-19 cases in our community and 0-5 individuals are in self-isolation. Events and gatherings at Splatsin are suspended until further notice to help stop the spread.

Splatsin Health Services continues to work diligently to monitor the ongoing pandemic in our community. Individuals who are in self-isolation are receiving check-ins and support and are ordered to stay at home until they are cleared by Interior Health.

This is a friendly reminder to continue preventative measures to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your community against COVID-19. Vaccinated people can still catch and spread COVID-19, but are much less likely to experience serious illness due to the virus.

  • Wear a face mask in public
  • Wash hands with soap and warm water or use hand sanitizer often
  • Keep a physical distance of 6’ between yourself and others in public
  • Sanitize frequently touched surfaces of your home
  • If you’re sick, stay home and call Splatsin Health Services at (250) 838-9538, or after hours, call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1

BC Vaccine Card

The BC Vaccine Card, often referred to as the “vaccine passport,” came into effect on September 13. Proof of vaccination is required to access some services such as restaurants, indoor organized events, fitness classes, and more. If you have been vaccinated and have not yet downloaded your BC Vaccine Card, you can get it easily:

  • Online, if you have your personal health number and one of your vaccination dates from dose 1 or 2:
  • Phone, if you do not have your personal health # and/or vaccination date from dose 1 or 2: 1-833-838-2323

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.
