The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, and difficulty breathing. Most patients
experience mild symptoms, and recover without treatment. More information on
symptoms is available here
Please take the provincial COVID-19 self-assessment and follow provided instructions.
Coronaviruses are spread mainly from person to person through close contact, for example, in a household, workplace or health care centre.
There is no vaccine available to protect against the 2019 novel coronavirus, but there are actions you can take to help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses.
Take these everyday steps to reduce exposure to the virus and protect your health:
wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
sneeze and cough into your sleeve
avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
avoid contact with people who are sick
stay home if you are sick
this time, due to limited test supplies across the province, patients are
unlikely to be tested for COVID-19 unless they are admitted to hospital.
