COVID-19 Resources for Dawson Creek Residents

The City of Dawson Creek continues to move forward in the BC Restart Plan. The health and safety of our customers and staff are our top priority.  As such, the City continues to follow recommendations and guidelines from the provincial government and health authorities.

General Health Guidelines from the BC Centre for Disease Control (BC CDC) and Northern Health:

  • Sneezing or Coughing? Cover it.  Cough or sneeze into your elbow or cover your mouth and nose with a disposable tissue. Remember to wash and dry your hands after coughing or sneezing.
  • Avoid touching your face. Viruses can live on your hands for up to 5 minutes and on hard surfaces for up to 2 days.
  • Physical Distancing.  When outside of your home, keep two metres (six feet) away from others.
  • Sick? Stay home.  Self isolate from others as soon as you have any symptoms. If you’re not at home when a symptom develops, go home immediately and self isolate.  Call your doctor or the Northern Health COVID-19 Online Clinic: 1-844-645-7811.
  • Hand hygiene. Wash your hands often with soap and water for at lease 20 seconds; if soap isn’t available, use hand sanitizer. Avoid touching surfaces that other people touch often.

Below you can find a list of useful links to various local, provincial and federal support and information.
