Getting sick sucks, and when it happens in the middle of a global pandemic it’s worse than ever.

After you’ve completed Alberta Health Services’ online COVID-19 self-assessment tool and arranged your test if needed, all that’s left to do is stay home and nurse yourself back to health (while self-isolating, of course, because nobody wants to catch those germs).

While you’re recovering, you’ll need some nourishing food and soothing drinks to get your body back to feeling like it’s kick-ass self again. These local Edmonton items fit the bill perfectly, so just order online or ask a friend to pick them up.
