It is also important to note that the federal government is urging all Canadians to practice physical distancing. The COVID-19 situation is changing quickly and the Minister of Health and the Provincial Health Officer are making regular joint statements on this topic, which are available here. You can hear audio recordings of the joint press conferences on the BC Government’s SoundCloud Account.
The provincial government has created a dedicated phone service to provide non-medical information about COVID-19 (travel recommendations, social distancing, access to support and resources from the provincial and federal governments.)
British Columbians can reach service representatives seven days a week, from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., by calling 1 888 COVID19. Information is available in more than 110 languages.
