KB FETCH is continuing to include information about services and resources that might be helpful to Kootenay Boundary residents and communities.
At this time, rather than adding COVID-19 related changes to each individual program page, we are posting lists of changes and updates for communities or areas. Put "COVID-19" in the search bar below to find this information.
Before trying to access a service, we suggest that you phone first before going to the location.
Please contact us if you have information about a local service or community response to COVID-19 that you think we should add. Many thanks to all who are working so hard to help us all get through this difficult time!
