It’s looking like BC has being doing really well at minimizing the spread of COVID-19. It’s been a hard adjustment for many, but it is paying off. Thank you for doing your part to keep your friends, family and community safe, and reduce the burden on the health care system.

Serious symptoms, serious care

Even though health care is being delivered differently, and it can be scary to go to the hospital, if you are having a medical emergency you still need to go to the Emergency Department or call 911. Hospitals are working hard to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 inside the facility. If you’re having issues or symptoms that are serious enough that you would have gone to emergency in the past, it’s still the right thing to do. Chest pain, shortness of breath, severe pain, deep cuts, burns, and more – these are all reasons to go to emergency. Please be safe by getting assessment of serious health issues.
