Medical AidBurnaby residents and patients of Burnaby Physicians and Nurse Practitioners can access the website burnabycoronavirus.com for information about how and where to seek care regarding COVID-19.

This is a new website, hosted by the Burnaby Primary Care Network, in collaboration with the City and other service providers. Currently, it offers a link to the COVID19 self-assessment tool, which steers people who may be sick to the appropriate course of action, including telephone and video conference consultation with a physician, and screening appointments where appropriate. Soon, the site will be expanded to include links to the various services available for people who have been affected socially and financially by the Coronavirus. The site is constantly being updated to stay in compliance with the latest information and criteria from the BC Centre for Disease Control. It is an excellent, accurate, and up-to-date resource.
