For more information on COVID-19, refer to HealthLink BC’s COVID-19 website.   The province has created a phone service to provide non-medical information about COVID-19, including the latest information on travel recommendations and social distancing. Information is available in more than 110 languages, 7:30 am – 8 pm at 1-888-COVID19 (1-888-268-4319) or via text message at 604-630-0300.

Northern Health has launched a COVID-19 Online Clinic and Information Line to help answer questions and concerns from Northern BC residents.  The NH COVID-19 Online Clinic and Information Line can be reached at 1-844-645-7811.  A quick reference to the COVID-19 Online Clinic and Information Line is available on the CMSD82 website home page.

This service is to ensure Northern Health residents have access to information, health advice, and an online clinic to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, while reducing demand on emergency rooms and other health services.  This service is staffed by nurses, physicians, and nurse practitioners, offering virtual screening and assessment for individuals who feel they may have COVID-19 or feel they have been exposed. By calling the Online Clinic, Northern BC residents can receive information, may undergo virtual screening, be assessed by a nurse, and may see a physician or nurse practitioner if it is required.

Other options for health information and advice continue to be available, including calling your primary care provider, or contacting HealthLink BC (8-1-1) at any time.  For general COVID-19 health advice and answers to common questions, please continue to visit: http://www.bccdc.ca/health-info/diseases-conditions/covid-19/common-questions
