HEALTH

Whether or not you have COVID-19, you probably need to access healthcare resources during the outbreak. There are many aspects of physical and mental health that need upkeep, and we all need to make sure we're looking after each other through this.

We've put together some resources to keep you informed about your health options during the outbreak.

THE CURVE + PHYSICAL DISTANCING

According to the BC CDC, physical distancing is a way that we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by limiting close contact with others. We should keep 2 metres (6 ft) apart from one another, even if we are not sick.

You can practice physical distancing by:

  • Limiting outside activities

  • Connecting virtually

  • Keeping distance from someone else

  • Minding your hands

  • Wearing a mask often

  • Avoiding social gatherings.
