Who are the people in Prince George fighting for us in the battle against COVID-19 so we can recover and stay healthy?

Takla Nation revealed some of those front-line faces on Tuesday (April 7) in a special video, sharing with residents what their role is during the pandemic.

Almost 20 local healthcare professionals, first-responders and other key workers were asked to sit in front of the camera to help deliver the message.

As of this publication, despite Northern Health only having 23 of the province’s 1,291 test-positive COVID-19 cases, the front-line workers explain why it's important to follow the recommendations of public health officials to help stop the spread of the virus.

This includes staying at home as much as possible, frequently washing your hands and physically distancing from others.

Within 24 hours, the video has garnered over 31,000 views.

Takla Nation, a member of the Carrier Sekani Tribal Council (CSTC), covers more than 27,000 sq. km. of north-central B.C.
