  1.     Travel precautions have been removed for Community Members and Residents
  • Self-Monitoring upon entry into Klemtu is no longer required.
  • Restrictions will remain in place for essential workers, masks and physical distancing must still be used while indoors or when physical distancing cannot be maintained.
  • COVID-19 isolation units will no longer be available.
  • All businesses retain the right to have COVID-19 controls in place for customers and workers protection; those policies are set by each business, not the EOC or BCCDC.  So do not throw your mask away – you’ll need them for any travel, and may need them in local businesses.
  • Kitasoo is still closed to all non-essential travel, all travelers must complete application prior to entering the territory.

We would like to remind everyone to:

  • Wear a mask and maintain physical distancing whenever possible
  • Stay home if you feel sick
  • Seek medical advice and testing should you experience any signs and symptoms

The earliest the Province will move into Step 3 of the Restart plan is July 1, 2021, please standby for further updates.

If you have any questions and or concerns, please contact the Health Centre at (250) 839-1221 or the Emergency Operations Centre (778)913-9712.
