COVID-19

NORTHSIDE AND COVID-19

BC is currently in Phase 3 of its re-opening. Northside is currently operating at full capacity without restrictions. Therefore, masks are optional. However, we ask that you please be considerate of others and their risk-tolerance.

ABOUT COVID-19
The current risk for Canadians is considered Low, but this could change rapidly.

There is an increased risk for people aged 65 and over; people with compromised immune systems; and people with underlying medical conditions.

The symptoms of the 2019 novel coronavirus, which can include fever, cough and difficulty breathing, are similar to other respiratory infections, including influenza.

Most people with common human coronavirus illnesses will recover on their own.

STAY SAFE
There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses. Take these everyday steps to reduce exposure to the virus and protect your health:

 

  • wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • sneeze and cough into your sleeve
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth
  • avoid contact with people who are sick
  • stay home if you are sick
