Shuswap Band Office Closure – COVID-19

Weytk-p xexwéytep,

The Shuswap Band offices will be closed for a minimum of two weeks, from Monday, November 15th until Monday, November 29th, as we currently have three confirmed COVID-19 cases amongst staff.

Staff contact information is available in the Members Only area of the website. We will update the community with information as it becomes available.

There are a few types of illness going around right now, and they all have similar symptoms to COVID-19. The only way to know if your illness is COVID is to get tested. Please get tested, even if you are only experiencing one symptom and even if it is mild. Management will be checking in on staff every day and if you are feeling sick you will need a negative COVID test to return to work.

Common symptoms of COVID-19 include:

  • Fever or chills
  • Cough
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Sore Throat
  • Headache
  • Extreme Fatigue or tiredness
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Nausea or vomiting

To get tested, please book an appointment using the Interior Health COVID-19 Test Booking Form (24hrs) at or by calling 1-877-740-7747 for assistance between 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., MST, seven days a week.
