A new coronavirus is causing an outbreak of respiratory infections. Find information about COVID-19, how to protect yourself, your family and your community and what to do if you suspect you have the virus here from the BC Centre for Disease Control.
This self-assessment tool, developed with the BC Ministry of Health, will help determine whether you may need further assessment or testing for COVID-19. You can complete this assessment for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, if they are unable to.
The most important thing you can do to prevent infection is to wash your hands regularly and avoid touching your face.
To help reduce your risk of infection:
Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Using soap and water is the single most effective way of reducing the spread of infection.
If a sink is not available, alcohol based hand rubs (ABHR) can be used to clean your hands as long as they are not visibly soiled. If they are visibly soiled, use a wipe and then ABHR to effectively clean them.
Do not touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands.
Cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue or the crease of your elbow when you sneeze or cough.
Regularly clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
Do not share food, drinks, utensils, etc.

As the COVID-19 outbreak unfolds, nations around the world are enforcing measures to ease the spread of the virus. On March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO), officially declared the outbreak a pandemic. Health workers and governments are working tirelessly to control the situation, but each of us also has an important part to play.
As your health care advocates we encourage you to stay home whenever possible to stop the spread of COVID-19.
