HERE IS WHAT WE KNOW:
ADVICE TO THE COMMUNITY:
- Based on what we know, do not travel to high risk and emerging areas identified in the list of countries and regions reporting cases of COVID-19 such as China, Hong Kong, South Korea, northern Italy and Iran. If you must travel to these areas, please do not attend public gatherings such as religious centres because doing so, within 14 days of your return, may put others at risk.
- If during the 14 days after your return from these impacted areas, you feel ill with fever, cough, shortness of breath or diarrhea, please call your doctor.
How to protect yourself
- You can also read this detailed FAQ to learn more about the coronavirus and how to reduce your risk of infection
- There are everyday actions that can help prevent the spread of germs that cause respiratory illnesses. The Ontario Ministry of Education has developed information sheets in multiple languages including Urdu, Farsi and Arabic, on how we can protect ourselves.
As this situation evolves, we will continue to update community members. If you have specific questions about your situation, please email us at [email protected].
