TB Services & COVID-19
Provincial TB Services (TBS) is committed to providing appropriate, timely and safe care to British Columbians. In response to COVID-19, TBS will continue to see the highest priority TB patients:
- Virtual Care visits: For many patients, appointments will now be over the phone and not in-person. Our intention is to, as much as possible, limit in-person clinic appointments.
- Rescheduled visits: For other patients, appointments may be cancelled or postponed.
Thank you for your patience and understanding when referring patients to TBS. The BCCDC also has a TB and COVID-19 section.
