Carrier Sekani Family Services (CSFS) has finalized a prevention plan to ensure the safety of community members and avoid possible transmission risks associated with COVID-19.
Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, and Nurses will continue to see patients as usual, and our focus will be on virtual care. CSFS is a leader in providing telehealth services, which is a great strength during this time. Virtual care will include telephone and video conferencing rather than in-person visits. This will reduce transmission risks for everyone.
Things to consider:
To access CSFS health services, please consider the following:
When in doubt, please call ahead!
The focus right now is on preventing the transmission of COVID-19. This includes encouraging everyone to practice good hygiene (handwashing), self-isolation, especially for elders and anyone with compromised health conditions, anyone who has travelled outside of Canada, and anybody who has symptoms, as well as social distancing (while still caring for one another by keeping in close contact using the phone etc). One of the great strengths of our people is how we care for each other.
This is a rapidly changing situation, and we will be sending our regular updates on a consistent basis. Please look out for these communications in the following days.
