covid-19 social distancing works

COVID-19 Response from the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice:

We support Family Physicians and Nurse Practitioners in Chilliwack, Agassiz, Seabird and Hope that serve patients all the way up into the Fraser Canyon. Help us in supporting them to stay virus free and be able to continue to provide care in our community.

  1. If you have recently returned from travel outside of Canada and/or have mild symptoms, STAY HOME, you do not need to be tested. If you are unsure or your symptoms begin to worsen, call your family physician or nurse practitioner’s office, use the COVID-19 self-assessment tool, or dial 811 to speak to a nurse.
  2. Practice social distancing. This means limit the number of people you come into close contact with, avoid crowded spaces, maintain a distance of about 2 meters, avoid non-essential trips outside of your home, and limit the number of visitors in your home. Remember to wash your hands often and thoroughly and don’t touch your face!
  3. DON’T stockpile food and household supplies like toilet paper. Our supply chains are strong, there is NO need for that right now.
  4. Stay informed from trust worthy sources. BC CDC is the source of reliable information. Watching the daily update from Dr. Bonnie Henry (Provincial Medical Health Officer) and Adrian Dix (Minister of Health) will let you know what is going on in the province.   

Thank you for doing your part for the health and well-being of our communities. #doyourpart #bettertogether

Yours in Health, Chilliwack Division of Family Practice
