District of Fort St. James, Councillor Dr. Paul Stent February 12, 2021

Frosty greetings to everybody living along the shores of Stuart Lake.   As the graph shows, the combined efforts of most of the people living in British Columbia in the past 2 months have succeeded in bending the curve downwards. On Wednesday of this week, we reached the lowest total of hospitalized COVID-19 patients since November 20, with 230 inpatients across BC, 66 of these being in ICUs. Our local communities have had 3 new cases diagnosed since February 1, all of whom are quarantining at home.  For complete letter, click here
