Should you seek testing for COVID-19?

Fraser Health follows the BC CDC's guidelines for British Columbians who need to determine if they should be tested for COVID-19, which outlines the following:

  • Use the B.C. COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool to see if you need to be tested for COVID-19
  • If you feel unwell and are unsure about your symptoms, contact your health care provider or call 8-1-1. 

You can use this updated chart to determine which of your symptoms indicate a COVID-19 test is needed.
