UPDATE March 14, 2020:

Alberta Health Services 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. 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. Please visit: http://ahs.ca/covid to use this tool.

If you have any questions about symptoms please do not go to an emergency room. Please  dial 811 on your phone to connect with Health Link so they can direct you. (https://www.albertahealthservices.ca/assets/healthinfo/link/index.html
