This page will provide updates on the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) as they become available. The Ministry of Health has released guidelines for primary care, along with posters. A website for healthcare providers is now live. You can also access information for the public on their site.
The Ministry is providing us lists of COVID-19 assessment centres on a regular basis. The list below will be updated once the information is received. Updates are also on the ministry's site; however, the spreadsheets below might be updated slightly quicker, depending on timing.
