COVID-19 Omicron Variant Update

Staff will be accessible by phone or email. We encourage the public to reach out through these channels if possible.

The Omicron Variant is becoming the most commonly detected variant in B.C. as it spreads more easily between people than previous COVID-19 variants. It can be spread by those who have been vaccinated, especially when they are symptomatic. Current vaccines provide good protection against severe illness and hospitalizations from COVID-19. Refer to the BCCDC website for updates.

Interior health is available for COVID testing in both Kelowna and Westbank and can be reached online.  

Help stop the spread of COVID-19 by continuing to follow public health measures:

  • Wear a mask
  • Limit interactions
  • Keep your distance
  • Wash your hands often
  • Get vaccinated

The WFN Health team does not have the COVID-19 vaccine onsite. Appointments can be made online with Interior Health for a first, second, or booster dose.

For those who are unsure if they need a COVID-19 test are encouraged to call 811 to help determine if they require testing.
