We know our community is concerned with the recent coronavirus outbreak and its arrival in Canada. At this time, the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC) considers the risk to British Columbians as low. To date, there have been no cases of illness caused by the coronavirus in British Columbia. If you are concerned you have been exposed to or are experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus, contact your health-care provider, local public health office, or call 811.

  • We suggest the following steps that can help prevent the spread of any virus or germs to reduce your risk:
  • Wash your hands frequently, especially if you’ve been out in public.
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, mouth and nose.
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow. If you use a tissue, make sure to dispose of it properly and wash your hands.
  • If you feel unwell, stay home so you don’t pass your infection onto others, especially those who may be at higher risk.

We advise anyone concerned about the outbreak to bookmark http://www.bccdc.ca/ and check regularly for further updates. We appreciate your cooperation in helping keep our community safe.
