Accessing medical care on Haida Gwaii during the pandemic

While we are encouraging everybody to stay at home and minimize contact with others to avoid the spread of COVID-19, your North and South End hospitals remain open and accessible 24/7 to all who need medical attention. We have taken all the precautions to keep you, our hospital patients and the staff safe when medical care is needed. We are also providing regular virtual appointments (by telephone and, very soon, by video) to continue caring for you in a timely way.
