The Salmon Arm area has not been without COVID-19 cases, but the number is low.
Instead of just Interior Health Authority data, the BC Centre for Disease Control has now released data specific to what are called local health areas. The Salmon Arm Health Area is one. It includes Neskonlith, Adams Lake, some Splatsin and Okanagan band land, as well as Salmon Arm, Sicamous, Malakwa, Sorrento, Blind Bay, Tappen and Falkland.
From January to July 2020, the Salmon Arm Health Area has had seven known COVID-19 cases.
That compares to two in the Enderby Health Area, which includes Enderby, Kingfisher, Mara, Grindrod and Splatsin land.
The Armstrong Health Authority, with just one known case of COVID-19, includes Armstrong, Spallumcheen and some Okanagan band land.
If you would like to look at all the data on COVID-19 cases in B.C., including the map showing cases by Local Health Area, you can find it on the BC Centre for Disease Control site at www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19/data.
