*** UPDATED MARCH 27, 2020
The BC Centre for Disease Control manages a range of provincial programs and clinics that contribute to public health and help control the spread of disease in BC, and is coordinating response to the current outbreak of Novel Coronavirus, and advises that  health providers should ask patients presenting with respiratory illness about recent travel.
To facilitate early detection and containment, clinicians should notify their local medical health officer as soon as possible about patients presenting with: 
      • Fever and acute respiratory illness, with or without pneumonia 
      • Recent travel to Hubei Province (includes Wuhan City), China, Iran, and Italy within 14 days prior to symptom onset 
      • Another potential relevant exposure such a close contact with someone who was ill and had recently travelled to Hubei Province (includes Wuhan City), China, Iran, or Italy.
