The declaration on March 17, 2020 of a public health emergency related to COVID-19 means that British Columbia is now facing two concurrent crises: one, the rapidly escalating spread of the novel coronavirus and another, the ongoing opioid overdose crisis.

The BC Centre on Substance Use is working to respond to these dual public emergencies to help protect our communities at this very critical time. Below is a list of guidance, education and training, and other resources to support the response to COVID-19 amongst people who use substances.
