An evacuation order has left the West Chilcotin Health Centre in Tatla Lake closed.
The Cariboo Regional District issued the order Friday due to wildfire activity in the area.
Interior Health says residents should contact 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency. They can also attend the Alexis Creek Health Centre Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to noon and 1 to 4:30 p.m. with on-call emergency nursing services available 24/7 or the emergency department at Cariboo Memorial Hospital in Williams Lake.
Those unsure if their health needs are an emergency can call HealthLink BC at 8-1-1 to speak to a health care professional.
Interior Health says it will continue to update residents on the status of facilities and health services, including when full services may be restored in Tatla Lake.
Residents can visit the health authority’s Major Events page on the Interior Health website for further information.
