Interior Health is announcing a COVID-19 outbreak at Williams Lake Seniors Village (WLSV) and a temporary stop to all visits.

The virus has been detected in a unit of the long-term section of the care home, with one resident testing positive for COVID-19.

Individuals who were in close contact with the resident are in self-isolation and monitoring their symptoms and the resident's family has been informed.
