COVID-19 Outbreak

Public Health Agency of Canada poster 4/5/20 10:03 PM

What is the difference between self-monitoring, self-isolation, and isolation? How do I know if I should be actively doing one of these?

See attached infographic published by the Government of Canada, which describes the key differences (also available at the following link): https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/publications/diseases-conditions/self-monitoring-self-isolation-isolation-for-covid-19.html.

What measures can I take to keep me and my family safe?

It is important to know that we all have the possibility of exposure to the virus and do not know exactly where it is or where it may be. Each and every one of us has the tools necessary to prevent the spread of infection, and a responsibility to use them.

This includes continuing to practice good infection prevention and control practices to help protect against getting sick and spreading illness. These practices include:
- Washing your hands frequently with soap and water or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
- Covering your mouth and nose when you sneeze or cough.
- Sneezing or coughing into your sleeve or arm if you do not have a tissue.
- Staying home if you are sick.
- If you have travelled outside of Canada, self-isolate for 14 days from the day you arrived home.
- If neighbours or family members need supplies, then help them, but practice social distancing.
- If you need to take public transit to access health or necessary goods or services, practice physical distancing.

Every opportunity to avoid interactions with others helps to prevent the spread of this disease.
