MP Taylor Bachrach is heeding the advice of the Nisga’a Valley Health Authority, stepping back from public appearances for two weeks as he enters a period of self isolation following his attendance at the Memorial Service for Nisga’a leader Dr. Joe Gosnell last week.
The Skeena Bulkley Valley MP advised his constituents of his situation on Monday through a post on Facebook. Mr. Bachrach observed that he was self isolating out of an abundance of caution.
He notes that he will continue on with his work during the period, using phone and video conferences towards his duties.
As we noted over the weekend, the Nisga’a Valley Health Authority issued its advisory on Saturday.
The notice from the Health Authority calls on all attendees of the funeral/feast for Dr. Gosnell to contact the NVHA clinic in their area, notify their respective Village government chief Administrate as well as to self isolate.
Dr. Gosnell’s memorial period took place between August 21st and 25th, while the advisory in place is extended to the period of August 17-28.
