In BC, we continue to guidelines in place to help manage the impact of COVID-19.  This  approach focuses on keeping people safe in their day to day lives. It’s still important to stay home and get tested if we feel sick. You can get tested at a COVID-19 testing site or by getting a rapid test done at home.

If you’re feeling any anxiety about COVID-19 or getting the vaccine, that’s totally normal. Make sure you take care of yourself and get support when you need it.
