Are you experiencing symptoms of COVID-19?

If you have symptoms such as fever, cough and difficulty breathing and have travelled outside Canada or have been exposed to someone who has COVID-19, stay home and call Health Link at 811. If you are not seriously ill, do not go to a physician’s office, a health care facility or a lab without consulting with Health Link 811 first. Call 911 if you are seriously ill and need immediate medical attention and inform them that you may have COVID-19.

Help prevent the spread of COVID-19: 

  • If you are sick, stay home and self-isolate.
  • Avoid having visitors to your home. 
  • Wash your hands often and well.
  • Avoid touching your face or mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue and dispose of the tissue into a plastic-lined garbage bin. Wash your hands afterwards. If no tissue is available, cough or sneeze into a flexed elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched.
  • Avoid gatherings of greater than 15 people and practice social distancing (keep a distance of 2 meters from others).
