Information for health care workers about when to seek testing for COVID-19, where to go, and what to do next
As a Fraser Health staff or medical staff member, if you develop cold, influenza or COVID-19-like symptoms, even mild ones, please self-isolate and get tested for COVID-19.
These symptoms may include but are not limited to new onset fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, rhinorrhea, nasal congestion, loss of sense of smell, loss of appetite, chills, headache, fatigue, and myalgia.
If you develop any of these symptoms, book a testing appointment as soon as possible. Let the testing and immunization centre know that you are a health care worker.
Anyone with mild symptoms should be tested. If you are a close contact of a confirmed case, even with no symptoms, you should get tested seven days after exposure. Public Health will also provide recommendations on when to get tested when they speak with you. (Disclaimer: website was updated on May 19th, 2021 to align to current practice)
