The best source of up-to-date information on the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) in British Columbia is the BC Centre for Disease Control (BCCDC). The BCCDC provides answers to additional questions from patients with chronic conditions. This infographic from the BC College of Family Physicians is helpful.

If you are concerned about your symptoms, please see the ONLINE COVID19 SELF ASSESSMENT TOOL.

For fever, muscle aching, and headaches, we generally recommend acetaminophen (Tylenol); however, non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) such as Ibuprofen use is acceptable if symptoms do not respond to acetaminophen. If you are taking any steroid medications you should consult your physician for further instructions.

If you need more information, please contact our office for instructions before coming to the clinic. You may also contact 811 or go to emergency for severe symptoms. Most people with minor symptoms should not come to the office and should self isolate at home. We are offering the option to have a video visit with your doctor instead of a face to face appointment.
