Northern Health is reminding residents to adhere to the new provincial health orders and guidelines as we experience increasing COVID-19 numbers.
With more frequent cases and clusters, as well as increasing hospitalizations, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry has issued strong orders and guidelines in an effort to address the surge in cases. The North is not exempt from the increase in COVID-19 activity and hospitalization rates, and Northern Health is reinforcing Dr. Henry’s call to act appropriately.
Northern Health is encouraging eceryone to act responsibly and to play your part in limiting the spread of the virus. These include (but are not limited to):
- No social gatherings of any size
- Wearing a mask in indoor public spaces
- No non-essential travel
- Staying home if you are sick
The full orders and guidelines can be found at www.gov.bc.ca/covid19.
If you are experiencing potential COVID-19 symptoms, we continue to ask that you self-isolate, and contact your primary care provider or the NH COVID-19 Online Clinic and Information Line at 1-844-645-7811.
