The Fernie Chamber of Commerce is hosting an online conversation with Dr. Ron Clark – Chief of Staff of the Elk Valley Hospital in Fernie. The online conversation will take place on Zoom and on the Fernie Chamber’s Facebook page and will be available to replay on Facebook.
With reports of at least one local case impacting the business community, it is a good time to connect businesses with our local team of medical professionals and revisit some of the basics when it comes to protecting our community. The conversation will cover topics like the definition of close contacts, and at what point it is necessary for a staff member to self-isolate and be tested.
Brad Parsell (Executive Director of the Fernie Chamber of Commerce) explains, “there has never been a more critical time for Fernie businesses since the start of the pandemic than right now. With reports of local cases and travel advisories already having a serious impact on our winter tourism season, we feel it is an important moment to have a conversation with our medical professionals. We need to refocus on the steps businesses can and should be taking to mitigate any escalation of cases and subsequent impacts on our local hospital.”
Members of the community who have specific questions for Dr. Ron Clark are encouraged to reach out to the Fernie Chamber ahead of the scheduled online conversation. The Fernie Chamber of Commerce thanks Dr. Clark in advance for his precious time, and all the important work our healthcare community has been doing on Fernie’s behalf.
