COVID-19 Resources


Alberta Health Services Public Health has asked the ACFP to support regular updates to family physicians in Alberta regarding the potential outbreak of novel coronavirus. AHS, ACFP, and CPSA, will continue to share the latest information through our communication channels as it becomes available. All channels will direct you to the same “source of truth” on the AHS website.

AHS COVID-19 Daily Update for Medical Staff: The update outlines key information and developments on the response. It will be shared here daily. Note: Some resources in the update are specific to AHS.

Information on 211: 211 is a helpline, referral centre and online database of Alberta’s community and social services, including employment, shelter and housing, financial supports and food/basic needs.
