COVID-19 Resources & Information
With the continued spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19 is causing concern around the world, RSBCIHI is committed to providing relevant information for our communities and tips for preventing the spread of this serious disease.
Using good hygiene practices can further reduce the risk of contracting COVID-19. Here are some simple preventative measures you can take:
- If you are symptomatic (fever, coughing, sneezing, body aches, etc.) do not go out in public where you can infect others. The common influenza/flu virus is also very active right now and has killed more people already this year than COVID-19. If you’re sick, stay home!
- Frequently wash hands with soap and warm water, scrubbing hands for at least 20 seconds. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer may also be effective.
- Follow proper etiquette when sneezing or coughing. Sneeze and cough into your elbow rather than your hand to avoid spreading the germs.
- Consider using a mask when traveling or in public areas. Masks should especially be used if you are coughing or sneezing frequently.
- Maintain at least 3 feet (1 meter) between yourself and other people in public, if possible. Avoid close contact with those who cough or are sneezing.
- Avoid touching/rubbing your eyes, nose and mouth, especially in public places where germs are easily spread.
- If you develop a cough or experience changes in your breathing, see your primary care physician as soon as possible. Be prepared share your travel history with the doctor.
- Avoid open markets and direct contact with animals/animal products
- Use careful food-safety practices (cook food thoroughly, wash produce well, use only pasteurized milk, etc.).

COVID – Pre-Vaccination Screening Forms
The following forms included questions which will help us determine if there is any reason you should not get the COVID-19 vaccine. If you answer “yes” to any question, it does not necessarily mean you should not be vaccinated. It just means additional questions may be asked. If a question is not clear, please ask your healthcare provider to explain it.
