Please see below for important information about Coronavirus from

At this time, there is no imminent danger or serious threat posed
by this virus in British Columbia or the rest of Canada.
Routine hand hygiene
is the best defense for this and all respiratory illnesses
- please wash your hands frequently and/or use hand
Wipe frequently-touched surfaces
with disinfectant wipes.
If you cough or sneeze, do so into your elbow, not on your hands;
and wash your hands thereafter if needed.
There is no protection offered by wearing, nor a need to wear,
surgical or N95 face masks.
If you have recently travelled to an affected area (central eastern

please notify a health care provider immediately and avoid contact
with others; wash your hands.
If you have symptoms of respiratory infection (cough, fever,
sneezing, etc.) but have not travelled to an affected area nor been
in contact with anyone who has done so, stay at home and treat the
illness symptomatically as you would any cold or mild flu.
