General Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). 

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.

Coronaviruses are zoonotic, meaning they are transmitted between animals and people.

Your healthcare professional, qualified government and health officials, should be your primary source of current information and guidance on coronavirus COVID-19.

Below are some key sources of information:

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death. 

Ontario Public Health has created a coronavirus (COVID-19) self-assessment tool. Visit the link here.

If you are exhibiting symptoms or think you may have come in contact with someone infected by coronavirus COVID-19, you should self-isolate and call the Ontario Public Health Information Line: 1-866-797-0000.

  • Self-monitoring: Looking out for fever, coughing and difficulty breathing for 14 days after possible exposure to the coronavirus.
  • Self-isolation: Staying indoors and completely avoiding contact with other people. A doctor will ask you to do this if you test positive for or have symptoms of coronavirus.
  • Quarantine: The government separates and restricts the movement of people who were exposed to the coronavirus to see if they become sick. Quarantine for two weeks.
  • Social/physical Distancing: Avoiding mass gatherings and public places (e.g. shopping centers, movie theatres) and maintaining distance (approximately 2 meters) from others when possible.

You can do the following things to reduce the risk of infection or spreading the infection to others:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds
  • If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (we have installed sanitizing stations in the Accora Centre and high-rise apartment buildings)
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Cover your coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your arm, not your hand
  • Stay home if you are sick
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Avoid visiting people in hospitals or long-term care centres if you are sick
  • Social distancing and self-isolation
