NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19)
ATC is working together with our First Nations to protect our citizens and all who we serve by providing relevant and up-to-date information as it becomes available and is confirmed to be accurate from official public health sources. Continue to visit our Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) page for more information about COVID-19 and what you can do to protect yourself.
AHS has developed a simple online assessment tool to help you decide whether you need to call 811 to be tested for COVID-19. It'll guide you to answer questions about your symptoms & take you through steps to help determine whether you need testing. http://ahs.ca/covid
The tool will direct you to call 811 if COVID-19 testing is required. It will also provide reassurance to those who don’t require further testing and will reduce call volumes to Health Link at 811 for those whose symptoms are not serious at this time.
