What you need to know about COVID-19
A new coronavirus called COVID-19 has caused an outbreak of respiratory infections. The symptoms of COVID-19, which can include dry cough, fever, sore throat and headache, are similar to other respiratory infections, including influenza. The number of cases worldwide is changing quickly. There are confirmed cases of COVID-19 in B.C. and Canada; however, all efforts remain focused on containing the spread of the virus. For the latest information on COVID-19, including the number of confirmed cases and links to information for travellers, visit the BC Centre for Disease Control. You can also follow them on Twitter for real-time updates.
Regular operations of many Interior Health programs, services and sites are impacted by COVID-19. Please call ahead if you are unsure about a previously scheduled appointment. Visit Find Us on interiorhealth.ca for locations and regular operating hours.
