VANCOUVER -- Do you think you have COVID-19?

Anyone with even mild cold or flu symptoms can be tested in British Columbia.

Those who think they may have novel coronavirus are advised to try the online self-assessment tool first, and asked to call ahead before heading to a doctor's office.

Some sites require an appointment, which can be booked online or by phone, depending on the location.

Back in March, there were only a few locations capable of giving the test, but since that time, dozens have sprung up across the province.

The test can be administered by physicians and nurse practitioners. There are 87 collection centres in B.C.:
