COVID-19 is taking a devastating toll on Canadian lives and communities. The number of cases has steadily risen from our first case in Canada in Toronto on January 25, 2020 to 11 cases on February 26, 2020 and exploded to 4,042 on March 26, 2020. On April 1, 2020, we have 9,017 cases with 102 deaths. In Ontario alone, we have 2,392 cases with 37 deaths.

It is important that we all do the following to stop the spread of this disease:
    • Stay home
    • Do not have visitors
    • Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 secs
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
    • Practice social distancing when walking – 6 feet from another person
    • Wash your hands whenever you return indoors from outside
    • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and discard into a lined wastebasket
    • If you do not have tissues, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not on your hands
    • If you returned from the US or abroad, you must isolate at home for 14 days

Contact a Health Professional if you have any of the symptoms:
    • Fever, cough, tiredness, difficulty breathing
    • Contact Telehealth at 1-866-797-0000, phone your family physician, phone your local Public Health authority. Isolate yourself from members of your household. Follow the instructions given to you.

Please take care and be safe.
