Summary: COVID-19 is a new disease caused by the novel coronavirus. In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared COVID-19 a global pandemic.
The FNHA is working with provincial and federal partners to actively monitor and respond to the pandemic. We have created these pages to help BC First Nations people and their healthcare providers and community leaders get the information they need to deal with the challenges posed by the pandemic and keep themselves and others safe.
This is not the time to lower our guard against COVID-19. We need to continue to protect each other, especially our Elders and people who are vulnerable, through physical distancing and hand-washing. Stay strong and stay the course during this pandemic – however long it takes.
