What was this engagement about?
The B.C.-wide population health survey gathered valuable information about how COVID-19 impacted the health and well-being of the people of B.C.
The survey asked questions about:
- whether you’ve experienced COVID-19-related illness,
- actions you’ve taken to prevent COVID-19,
- the challenges you have faced during this pandemic
- and your overall wellbeing.
At the end of the survey, you were asked about your interest in taking part in two future initiatives: A serology survey (blood testing) to help determine immunity across the population, and the planning for digital tools to help identify and manage COVID-19 infections in your community.
Please note: From April 24, 2020 to May 12, 2020 the BC government has also collected feedback through a COVID-19 questionnaire. Topics included: responses to government measures, actions, and decisions: current levels of concern: personal and job impacts: use and need of information sources.
How will my contribution make a difference?
Local data are essential for communities to support public health planning. Input from communities is helping equip medical health officers across B.C. to support overall health and wellbeing as we all learn to live with COVID-19.
