message from Copeman physicians

An important request from the physicians in BC at Copeman Healthcare

We, the physicians and nurse practitioners at Copeman Healthcare, are taking the step of writing to you personally regarding the COVID-19 virus. We believe we must act now to prevent the further spread of the virus.

You will have heard the directive from our Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, to self-isolate and practice social distancing. Regrettably, many residents are not following these guidelines and as a result are placing a greater number of residents at risk.

The time to act is now. Our province is in a state of emergency. What we do today will impact the health of British Columbians in the weeks to come.

Self-isolate: Stay home unless absolutely necessary. No dinner parties. No shopping. No sports (even when played outside). No play dates. Instead, have coffee with a friend online.

Practice social distancing: Keep six feet or two metres away from everyone at all times. That’s about the width of a car or two length of two arms stretched out. Call your loved ones and tell them to do the same.

Remind young people in your life that they can get sick from the virus. More importantly, they can be carriers and cause a lot of harm to parents, grandparents, and other loved ones. Become a champion of this message and spread the word to those in your social network, in your chat groups and to those on your email lists.

We can do this, but we can’t wait one more hour or one more day. Let’s save lives, together.

Signed,
