Staff at a medical clinic in Revelstoke say that small city in B.C.’s Interior has a confirmed case of COVID-19.

In a social media post on Tuesday, the Selkirk Medical Group said the local news cycle was abuzz that visiting heli-skiers had tested positive upon returning to their country, and that they may have unwittingly exposed others to the disease during their time in Revelstoke.

“We would like to encourage and support Revelstokians,” the clinic said. “This was inevitable.”

The post went on to say that there is no evidence of community transmission, since this case relates to international travel.

“As a community, we are in this together,” the post said. “We cannot more strongly stress the importance of each person’s role in flattening the curve by reducing contact with each other through social distancing and self isolation.”

Selkirk Medical Group confirmed the social media post was authentic to Global News on Wednesday morning.
