We know these wellness tips, designed for you to share on social media, will not be sufficient to overcome the significant stressors you and your loved ones are facing; but they are small, meaningful things that can help you stay resilient during this hard time. We hope they help.

A team at Kootenay Lake Hospital, led by emergency room physician Dr. Linda Johansson, created “love is contagious” downloadable stickers, buttons and signs to remind the community that a positive attitude of love and empathy can be contagious.
