Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry recommends fresh air and sunshine are important for your over-all health and your back yard is now your safest place to do that.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offers a list of tips and resources to help people come up with a personal and household plan.
If you are concerned that you have been exposed to COVID-19 call your local health care provide or 8-1-1 for instructions.

The 8-1-1 phone line is operated by HealthLink BC, which is part of the Ministry of Health. By calling 8-1-1, you can speak to a health service navigator, who can help you find health information and services; or connect you directly with a registered nurse, a registered dietitian, a qualified exercise professional, or a pharmacist. Any one of these healthcare professionals will help you get the information you need to manage your health concerns, or those of your family.
