The deadline for responses is this Sunday.

So far, more than 313,000 British Columbians have shared their stories, including more than 11,500 Northern B.C. residents.

The information gathered will help inform public health decisions in the weeks and months ahead. It also provides an opportunity for those interested to participate in further studies, including a serology blood test study to determine immunity within the province.
