The COVID-19 situation in British Columbia is continually evolving.
It is extremely important that everyone works to prevent the spread of this virus – even if you do not feel personally at risk we must all do our part to protect vulnerable community members as well as ensure our health care system is not overwhelmed. We must all take measures to slow transmission to protect our communities and health care system.
The symptoms of COVID-19 are similar to other respiratory illnesses and include: Coughing, Fever, Sore throat, Difficulty breathing/Shortness of Breath, Loss of Sense of Smell, Headache and Fatigue.
If you have symptoms you believe could be COVID-19, or require medical information:
🌐 visit the COVID-19 self-assessment tool
☎️ call 8-1-1 or your primary care provider
They will determine if you require testing. A reminder that testing is done by appointment only.
If you are sick you must self isolate and avoid contact with others.
If you have non-medical questions about COVID-19 (ie travel restrictions, supports and resources):
☎️ call 1-888-COVID19 (1-888-268-4319)*
📱 text 604-630-0300

Be cautious of the source of information you read about the virus – particularly online. There is misinformation circulating on social media about transmission, prevention, and other aspects of this virus.
