Nass Valley warns residents for possible COVID-19 Exposure

John Crawford

Those who attended the ceremonies honouring the late Doctor Joseph Gosnell are being warned they may have been exposed to the novel coronavirus.

The warning has been issued by the Nisga'a Valley Health Authority, which says a person who travelled to the Nass Valley between Monday August 17th and last Friday (August 28th) has tested positive for COVID-19 

The authority has implemented a mandatory 14-day self-isolation period for all Nass Valley residents who attended the funeral, memorial or feast for Gosnell on August 24th and 25th. 

It's also advising attendees living outside the valley to contact their local health authority and notify officials that they may have been exposed to the virus.

Drive-through and walk-up testing and contact tracing are now available at all community health centres in the Nass.

The authority has also imposed mandatory restrictions on all non-essential travel in and out of Nisga'a Territory.
