Patients are advised to understand the symptoms of the new coronavirus that causes the COVID19 disease, as well as know when to go to their family doctor or emergency room for testing. Please call 8-1-1 for advice, or visit http://www.bccdc.ca for updated information. If you are due for a cardiology appointment, please await notification as your appointment may be postponed or changed to a virtual / phone visit.
For healthcare professionals, we have cancelled our academic educational rounds until we have further information.
We hope everyone stays safe during this unsettling time. Remember to wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, and maintain social distancing of at least 2 m as much as possible.
