You must self-isolate. You do not need to be tested for COVID-19.

As of March 25, Albertans are legally required under public health order to self-isolate for 10 days from the onset of any COVID-19 symptoms which are not related to a pre-existing illness or health condition: cough, fever, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, runny nose or sore throat. If your symptoms resolve prior to the 10 days, you must continue to self-isolate because you may still be infectious.

  • Please do not visit a hospital, physician’s office, lab or healthcare facility without consulting Health Link (811) first.
  • Don't go to any public places.
  • Stay at home, and don’t have any visitors.
  • Don’t share personal items like dishes, utensils, and towels.
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Avoid close contact with other people, especially those with chronic conditions, a compromised immune system, or seniors (over 65 years of age).

Encourage members of your family to practice physical distancing.
