I am Cerelina Willie, daughter of "late" William (Dickie) &  Elizabeth (Betty) Humchitt (nee Thompson).  I was born and raised in Bella Bella and moved to Katit (Wuikinuxv Village) in September 2012. I am blessed to have been involved in both of my parents' home communities.

My husband is Stephen Willie and our boys are Kaelan Moon, Alec Willie (lil Willie), Hema Willie and Xanius Willie.  I have 20+ years experience in Administration, I learned from my co-workers, peers, supervisors, Directors and through trial and error.  I have a certificate in business management and education in Aboriginal Leadership.  I continue to grow and learn by reading health related documents and participating in the Health Caucus where I advocate for you. 
I have big love for my People and Community, you all mean the world to me and it is my pleasure to support everyone through the Wuikinuxv Health Department.  I also look forward to continuing my support of the community, children, youth, adults and elders by on-going community engagement and offering programs and services as requested and needed.
My passion for health has grown so much over the years and my love for the People encourages me to support everyone from a client based approach.  Wuikinuxv Health will host community engagement, community meetings and always welcome input.  

We want to host programs and activities that the People want to receive.  We will accept your input and build a Wuikinuxv Health Plan, detailed budget and annual workplan. 
I'd like to thank everyone for a warm welcome back to the community, it's wonderful to be home, and let the work begin!

There are cases of COVID in the community

Households are taking every precaution - here is some information on how to manage symptoms

Managing your symptoms

Most people can safely manage their symptoms at home. This includes drinking lots of water and fluids, resting, and using a humidifier or hot shower to ease a cough or sore throat.

If you have a fever, you can use non-prescription medicine like acetaminophen (Tylenol ®) or ibuprofen (Advil ®) to help with some of the symptoms of COVID-19.

You can call 8-1-1 anytime to talk to a nurse at HealthLink BC. This service is available in 130 languages. If your symptoms worsen, or if they do not improve after five or six days, call 8-1-1, your family doctor or go to an Urgent and Primary Care Centre (UPCC).

Go to an emergency department or call 911 if you:

  • find it hard to breathe

  • have chest pain

  • can’t drink anything

  • feel very sick

  • feel confused

SELF-ISOLATION AND COVID-19

Self-isolation means staying home and avoiding situations where you are in contact with others. It is an important measure used to stop the spread of illness. If you have COVID-19, you can manage your illness similar to how you manage other respiratory infections like influenza (flu). Stay home if you feel sick and take prevention measures to limit the spread of infection. There are a number of reasons why you should or may be required to self-isolate. For more information about self-isolation:

  • BC Centre for Disease Control: Self-Isolation and Self-Monitoring

  • Government of Canada: COVID-19 - Prevention and risks

SELF-MONITORING

Self-monitoring means paying close attention to how you feel. Everyone should routinely monitor for symptoms of COVID-19. Record your temperature if you feel chills or feverish. You may also need to help children or close contacts who are older or chronically ill to self-monitor.

Learn more about who needs to self-monitor at BC Centre for Disease Control: Self-Isolation and Self-Monitoring.
