Alberta Health Services has launched a new webpage designed to help Albertans manage mild symptoms of COVID-19 at home.
The new web resource has information on what to do when you have symptoms of COVID-19, how to provide effective home care for yourself or a family member, when to take a COVID-19 test and how to manage the prolonged symptoms of COVID-19. .
According to the statement, AHS says that while much of the information has been available throughout the pandemic, the new resource ensures that it is all located in one convenient and unique place.
The site also features newly created videos with several local doctors that provide up-to-date information to help Albertans know when to seek immediate medical attention and access care.
The AHS also noted that many Albertans who call Health Link 811 are unsure of how to manage their symptoms or whether they should seek care with a positive COVID-19 test result.
