Notice to Community Members of Alert Bay

When a swab is positive for COVID-19:

  1. A public health nurse will call the patient.
  2. An extensive interview and history to determine people who have been contacts will be conducted, based on the start of symptoms, risks and nature of contact.
  3. Those contacts that require testing will be contacted and an appointment will be set up to have a swab done. Instructions will be provided in that phone call as to where to proceed for testing.
  4. Contacts of the positive case will be required to self isolate until the swab is known to be negative.
