Northern Health is advising of a potential exposure to COVID-19, at The Key Resource Centre and the cold weather shelter in Fort St. James.
The exposure may have occurred between November 12 and 25, the agency said in a statement issued Tuesday afternoon.
Those who visited either the resource centre or shelter during that time are being asked to self-monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 until December 10.
"Public health contact tracing is underway and, where possible, NH is reaching out directly to individuals who have been exposed," Northern Health said and added there is no need for people to self isolated if they do not develop symptoms.
Conversely, those who do develop symptoms are asked to self isolate and contact the COVID-19 Online Clinic and Information Line at 1-844-645-7811 or their own doctor or nurse practitioner.
"If you have been identified as a COVID-19 case or close contact, please know that either NH Public Health or Nak’azdli Health Centre will contact you directly and provide further instruction," Northern Health said.
The agency also urged everyone to follow the current precautions and restrictions, which include no social gatherings of any size, wearing a mask in indoor public spaces, no non-essential travel and staying home if you are sick.
- A possible exposure was also listed for the Nak'albun Elementary School on the Nak'azdli Whut'en First Nation reserve just south of Fort St. James. It may have occurred between November 22 and 25, according to a posting on the Northern Health website.
It's the second time the school has reported a possible exposure. The first occurred in late September.
