August 5th COVID-19 Update


No Comments

Dear Sun Peaks Residents;

There are currently positive COVID-19 cases in Sun Peaks as confirmed by Public Health Officials in Vernon. They believe it is not at a crisis point at this time and have not issued a formal public announcement.

I would stress that regardless if there are no cases or even multiple confirmed COVID -19 cases, the recommendations of social distancing, mask wearing and hand washing are still advised.

If you are having any symptoms of possible COVID -19 please contact:

  • Registered patients call the clinic: 778-644-0635
  • For testing without physician referral, via the Public Health office in Kamloops 250-851-7467 Monday to Friday
  • Or via the Urgent Primary Care and Learning Centre 250-314-2256 at the weekends.

From now on we plan to update this message weekly or as any new information is released from local Public Health officials.

Stay safe and healthy out there!

Sincerely,

Shane Barclay MD
Medical Director, Sun Peaks Health Centre
