KB FETCH is continuing to include information about services and resources that might be helpful to residents of Kootenay Boundary (KB) communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are posting lists of resources and updates to services as well as adding specific changes to individual services pages.
If you want information specific to a particular area within the KB, go to the right-hand-side of the Home page, click on the applicable Community and then put "COVID-19" in the search bar.
Please contact us if you have information about a local service or community response to COVID-19 that you think we should include.
Many thanks to all who are working so hard to help us all get through this difficult time!

The Rural Evidence Review project in collaboration with the BC Rural Health Network has launched a provincial survey to understand rural and remote community experiences and responses to COVID-19. Participation is open to all residents of rural and remote BC communities. The survey is available on an ongoing basis, with no established end date.
