The Kootenay Boundary Division of Family Practice represents family physicians in Castlegar, Christina Lake, Fruitvale, Grand Forks, Greenwood, Kaslo, Midway, Nakusp, Nelson, New Denver, Rock Creek, Rossland, Salmo, and Trail, BC.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

BC's provincial health officer has declared COVID-19 a public health emergency.

We care about our patients and our communities. The most important thing you can do is stay home to prevent possible spread of COVID-19.

If you must go out into the community, keep a physical distance of about 2-metres between yourself and others. Wash your hands frequently and avoid touching your face, eyes, nose or mouth.
