Another COVID-19 alert has been issued in northern B.C.

Northern Health says COVID-19 tests and tracing has been able to identify some events and gatherings in the Prespatou region.

The authority says people may have been exposed to the virus, but is unable to identify and follow-up with all contacts. 

"Individuals who may have attended any events, service, or gatherings (however large or small) in the Prespatou region where social distancing or appropriate masking was not in place or being observed since early August are asked to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 and get tested if they begin to exhibit symptoms," the alert reads. 

Northern Health says contact tracing is underway and where currently possible, is reaching out to those that could have been exposed. 

"Individuals seeking a test should call their primary care provider (family physician or nurse practitioner) or the Northern Health COVID-19 Online Clinic and Info Line (1-844-645-7811)."

The Prespatou region is located roughly 100 km north of Fort St. John and 530 km north of Prince George.
