The Elk Valley Covid Support Team has been setup to keep our communities safe by minimizing social contact while providing essential physical, emotional, and spiritual support to those who are isolated or quarantined due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Their website states, “We love our neighbours by protecting our neighbours. Keeping our communities safe while supporting your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.”

Their primary purpose is to make sure those who are self isolated or quarantined have their essential needs met without needing to put themselves or others at risk. Here are the ways they are equipped and prepared to do that:

Physical Care
– Picking up and delivering groceries
– Picking up and delivering medication

Emotional Care
– Phone call check ins
– Phone call visits

Spiritual Care
– Pastoral care
– Spiritual counselling
– Prayer
