Interior Health has closed the Alexis Creek Health Centre indefinitely due to wildfire activity.
IH says the facility is within the evacuation order zone.
Officials are asking residents in the remote region to consider the following for their healthcare needs:
- For non-urgent matters, individuals can access service through the West Chilcotin Health Centre in Tatla Lake.
- In an emergency, call 9-1-1
- If you’re unsure of your health care needs, please consider calling HealthLink BC at 8-1-1, to speak to a registered nurse, dietitian or pharmacist.
Interior Health says it will continue to update residents about the status of its facilities and health services as the wildfire situation continues to evolve.
