Information about Coronavirus in Alberta

Posted on: Mar 9, 2020

Alberta Health Services states that the risk for all Albertans is still considered low. They continue to monitor the situation and public health measures are in place to quickly identify potential cases and prevent the infection from spreading.

It is also that time of the year when common respiratory viruses are circulating, such as the common cold and the flu. To help protect against all respiratory illnesses, please ensure good hygiene:

  • frequent hand washing with soap (wash as if you’ve handled hot peppers and need to put your contact lenses in!)
  • cover your cough into your elbow
  • stay at home and away from others if you are feeling ill
  • contact your primary health provider or 811 Health Link if you have any questions or concerns about your health

You can also visit the Alberta Health Services website for further information.
