Faking Sanity remains open at this time, with a few changes to take note of, especially for out of town customers.

The rest of the store is open to browse/shop, but we are encouraging social distancing in store, and offering curbside delivery. We’re also offering free delivery of books and yarn within Dawson Creek most evenings, and to Pouce Coupe every Monday.

Notes

BC Centre for Disease Control testing guidelines for COVID-19 has CHANGED. Testing is still available, but is a limited resource, and the demand for Covid-19 testing is exceeding capacity.

⭐️The below online self-assessment tool, developed with the BC Ministry of Health, will help determine whether you may need further assessment or testing for COVID-19. You can complete this for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, if they are unable to⭐️

WHO SHOULD BE TESTED FOR COVID-19?
People with respiratory symptoms who are:
🛑Hospitalized or likely to be hospitalized
🛑Health Care Workers
🛑Residents of long term care facilities
🛑Part of an investigation of an outbreak

WHO DOES NOT NEED TESTED FOR COVID-19?
❌People without symptoms
❌People with mild respiratory symptoms
❌This INCLUDES returning travelers

The BC Ministry of Health strongly urges anyone who has the following symptoms with OR without travel to self-isolate for 14 days:
✔️Fever
✔️Cough
✔️Sneezing
✔️Sore throat
✔️Difficulty breathing

🔹Our clinic is taking extra precautionary measures to reduce exposure to doctors, staff, elderly patients, those with immune compromised systems and the general public🔹

🔸Doctors are providing phone call appointments for prescriptions, results, follow-ups, etc. This is dependant on the patient, their health issues, the prescriptions they’re taking and whether the doctor needs to physically see you.

🔸While we have always followed everyday sanitizing procedures there is now increased upfront sanitizing. You may also notice some staff or doctors wearing a mask. It is important to note Fort St John is currently still low risk.

🔺IT IS VERY IMPORTANT to disclose ANY travel outside Canada or ANY respiratory symptoms you are having BEFORE presenting for an appointment so we can accommodate you appropriately.
🔺We are unfortunately having patients every day book appointments on the phone or present in person to the clinic and then disclose this information AFTER they have already checked in, sat in the waiting room, used the washroom and are put in an exam room. This is not acceptable behaviour and puts others at risk.

In the interests of minimizing exposure and the spread of the COVID-19 virus, effective immediately, all front counter services at the Fort St. John RCMP Detachment have been suspended until further notice.

What does this mean for the public? For the time being:

The Fort St. John RCMP will not be taking in-person complaints at the detachment. Our staff will still be able to take calls as normal. Please call the main line at 250-787-8100, or call 911 in the event of an emergency;
The Detachment will not physically intake Police Information Checks or Record Suspension Applications;
No civil fingerprinting will be conducted, nor will found property be accepted;
Documentation that would normally be available for pick-up at the front counter will now be mailed directly via Canada Post;
While this list is not all-inclusive, any business normally conducted at the front counter will be halted until further notice.
Please note, these measures are being undertaken to ensure ongoing service delivery to our communities. Patrol duties and enforcement actions are carrying on as normal. Communication that can be undertaken over the phone as opposed to in person will take place.

The Fort St. John RCMP want to thank our communities and partners for their patience during this event, and that normal front counter services will resume when prudent.
