Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry is reminding you of the survey launched to gather your insights about your experiences with COVID-19.
“The response has been outstanding,” Henry said. “In the last 24 hours since we announced it, over 75,000 people have responded as of noon today. This is valuable information to help us understand where we’ve been, who’s been affected, and where we need to go.”
“If you haven’t completed the survey yet, please take a few minutes to fill it in. It’s only about ten or 15 minutes. We want to hear from people across the province,” she added.
