What can you do to help?
British Columbians are asked to stay home. The more you stay at home, the safer it will be for everyone in your community. When out in the community you are now required to wear a mask.
Physical distancing from others is important. The number of people getting sick across British Columbia is growing. Staying away from others is the only way to keep people from getting the disease. No community is immune. COVID-19 can spread by people who have minimal symptoms. Someone who seems healthy could spread it to parents, grandparents or other people in our community. Some of these people could get seriously ill from this virus.
