The BC Centre for Disease Control is your most reliable source: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19

Face masks are now required in public buildings. This includes shops and offices as well as public transportation.

COUNSELLING

Many seniors, particularly those who feel vulnerable because of existing health conditions, have been self-isolating for months. While isolating is a correct course of action, it is hard to do on a continuing basis and isolation is taking its toll on seniors. We want to help. We are here to talk to you and if you would benefit from counselling, we can offer that too. Access to our counsellor requires a referral from our office but the counselling service continues to be free. Give us a call if counselling interests you: 250-871-5940

GROCERY SHOPPING OPTIONS

If you are uncomfortable about shopping, or cannot shop, we have volunteers who will help. We offer one shopping service per week. Please contact our office for information and to book a shop. You are responsible for paying for your groceries but our shopping service is free and we will go to two stores of your choice. In addition to groceries, we will pick up prescriptions, pet food, and other essentials.
