Island Health is warning people who were at several Victoria locations about possible exposure to COVID-19.

Anyone who was at those locations on the days in question should monitor themselves for symptoms, including coughing, sneezing, fever, sore throat and difficulty breathing.

If you have symptoms, self-isolate for 10 days after they start.

Self-isolating means staying home and avoiding situations where you could come in contact with others. Do not go to work or out in public. Have someone bring you supplies such as groceries and medication if needed, or have them delivered.

Use the self-assessment tool at bc.thrive.health or call 811 to determine whether you need to be tested.

More information on testing and self-isolation is available at here.

There have been 44 confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the area served by Island Health, and 617 in B.C. Thirteen people have died in the province, and 173 are considered fully recovered.
