  1.     Travel precautions have been removed for Community Members and Residents
  • Kitasoo is now open for travel, for all that are double vaccinated.  To those who are not vaccinated, we ask that you self-monitor, wear a mask and social distance when necessary. 
  • All businesses retain the right to have COVID-19 controls in place for customers and workers protection; those policies are set by each business, and not the BCCDC.  So do not throw your mask away – you’ll need them for any travel, and may need them in local businesses.
  • The Kitasoo Emergency Operations Centre has been dissolved effective immediately.  People traveling into community are encouraged to email to check-in prior to entry. 
  • The Nation’s State of Emergency has been rescinded effective immediately.


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 4 of the Restart plan is September 7, 2021, please standby for further updates.

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