The global COVID-19 pandemic is an evolving situation. To learn the latest information for patients about COVID-19 and cancer, please visit our updated page via this link.

The best source of up-to-date information on COVID-19 in British Columbia is the BC Centre for Disease Control website.  

If you are feeling well, it is important to ensure your cancer care continues as scheduled. If you are experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms such as cough, fever or shortness of breath call your cancer centre to determine whether you should reschedule your appointment

If you are under the public health requirement to self-isolate following travel, please do not come in to the centre without calling and speaking to staff.

BC Cancer is working to provide additional telephone visits for patients. Some patients with a scheduled appointment coming up will be contacted by BC Cancer to offer a telephone appointment. Those who do not receive a call should come into their centre for their appointment as scheduled if they are feeling well and not under a restriction to self-isolate.

All treatments are going ahead as planned unless you are contacted otherwise.

Some imaging tests may be postponed. Patients will be contacted if their test appointment is affected. Unless otherwise notified, please come in for your scheduled test appointment if you are well and not under a restriction to self-isolate.
