COVID-19 Testing for Individuals Experiencing Symptoms
If you are experiencing symptoms or have been exposed to someone who has a confirmed case of COVID-19, you can use the following self-assessment tool developed with the BC Ministry of Health: https://covid19.thrive.health/.
If you have severe respiratory symptoms call 911.
For worsening cough and breathing, or concerns about worsening of your chronic medical conditions and need a medical appointment, call for an appointment, or further medical advice.
If You Are Arriving or Returning to Canada
If you're arriving and/or returning back to Canada, the government of Canada has made it mandatory for anyone entering Canada to self-quarantine. SFU's International Student Advising and Programs has created a self-isolation guide to help you through this process, and SFU has a mandatory safety course you must take.
Find information to determine whether you need to be tested for COVID-19 and what your options as an international student are to get tested to go home.
Use this guide to better communicate with others during a time where various identities may experience the challenges of COVID-19 differently.
