What to do if you experience symptoms
If you think you may have COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, please consider the following options:
- Use the Ministry of Health's self-assessment tool to help determine if you need to seek further care.
- Contact your primary care provider or Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000 if you’re experiencing symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath) of COVID-19.
- Please do not visit an assessment centre unless you have been referred by a health care professional.
- Do not call 911 unless it is an emergency.
You can do your part in slowing the spread of the virus by:
- Self-isolating immediately if you have returned from travel outside Canada.
- Practicing physical distancing - stay 2 metres away from others.
- Washing your hands with soap and warm water thoroughly (20 seconds) and often.
- Coughing into your sleeve or elbow, or sneezing into a tissue,
- Cleaning cellphones, household surfaces, and other devices regularly.
- Staying at home and reducing the number of visits into your community.
