Getting ready to open for our 2021 season, one major consideration was having our staff vaccinated to ensure their safety and that of our guests and the community. With some effort on everyones part, we’re proud to say that we got it done before they came up to the lodge. But we’d only been open a few days when we realized that the “second jab” would come due for each of them all throughout the summer. Of course, in a location as remote as Naden Harbour, mobility is a major challenge, but we had to find a solution.
Thankfully for us, that solution was provided with the ultimate in care and professionalism by a wonderful team of nurses and doctors from Northern Haida Gwaii Hospital and Health Centre in Masset. Preparations were all made in advance and the medical team was picked up and delivered to the lodge where they set up their makeshift vaccination clinic in the Totem House lounge. Over the 8-hour schedule we managed to provide that critical second dose of vaccine to more than 100 of our staff from every department. The nurses even did live updates to the database so every staff received a notification confirming their vaccination. We pride ourselves on service and can happily verify that this team from Masset went above and beyond to take care of our staff… top shelf! Thank you so very much!
