Feel Sick?

If you have symptoms including fever, cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, sore throat or runny nose, you MUST self-isolate for 10 days after the onset of symptoms and until your symptoms have resolved (whichever is longer). Under no circumstance should you leave your property during self-isolation. Complete the COVID-19 online self-assessment for more information. DO NOT visit a hospital, physician’s office, lab or healthcare facility without consulting Health Link 811 first.

Info for Visiting Patients

Alberta Health Services has taken steps to restrict visitors to hospitals and congregate living sites (Long-term Care or Continuing Care Facilities), to protect patients and those at greatest risk of severe illness.

Do the right thing to stop the spread: Protect your loved ones by practicing physical distancing. We all have a role to play!
