Please see a joint statement from Health Minister Dix and Provincial Health Officer (PHO) Dr. Bonnie Henry.
Along with encouraging proper hand hygiene and staying home when unwell, the PHO also advises travellers (spring break, school trips etc.) to conduct risk assessments in advance and consider postponing trips to impacted areas – while noting that impacted areas are changing as COVID-19 continues to evolve. Please find all current health-related travel notices here.
The PHO asks people to refrain from customary greetings such as handshaking, hugging and kissing during the remainder of flu season.

For parents and educators, CBC Kids along with the PHO produced a kid-centric Q and A video about COVID-19. CBC Kids/ COVID-19 story. Click here to view it.
