Preventing the spread of COVID-19

Post Date:03/11/2020 8:27 AM

According to the Government of Alberta, Albertans are still unlikely to contract COVID-19. However, there a few things you can do to prevent its spread.

First, good hygiene practices, like handwashing, covering coughs and sneezes, and avoiding touching your face with unwashed hands, will help prevent COVID-19’s spread (along with influenza and other common viruses). You should stay at home and away from others if you’re feeling under the weather. You can dial Health Link at 811 if you have questions or concerns about your health.

If you have COVID-19 symptoms and have recently travelled outside the country (or were exposed to someone who has COVID-19), the Government of Alberta recommends staying at home and calling Health Link at 811. You should not go to a health care facility without consulting 811 first. If you’re needing immediate medical attention, call 911 and let them know that you suspect you have COVID-19.
