Ask your doctor about preventative health measures.
Your health is our happiness.
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:
Physical distancing - maintain a distance of at least 2 arms lengths from others.
If you have a new cough, or are having difficulty breathing, call 811.
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.

a letter to my patients
from Dr. Maryam ZeIneddin
I sincerely hope you are all doing well.
It has been trying times since March 2020, with the challenges and worries COVID has brought us. On behalf of all of us at Ambleside Medical Centre, we are honoured to continue caring for you throughout this difficult time to the best of our ability. I want to personally thank you for your continued support, compassion, and kindness for our team.
As a family doctor, I believe in long-term proactive care, with time to create and review a comprehensive care that suits your health mentally and physically. Our system does not provide us enough time, support, resources, or value in the proper care we desperately try to provide you on a daily basis. This uphill battle and the strains of this pandemic with overwhelming anxiety and depression in our population has now caused physician burnout. I have been struggling with burnout myself, and have been frustrated at a system which doesn't support comprehensive care for our patients. I count as one of the thousands of family practicing in BC feeling very similarly...
