Keep Calm and Self-Isolate

Posted On Friday March 20, 2020

We all know the spread of the Covid-19 virus is a serious matter and Premier Ford has declared a state of emergency.

We have been asked to self- isolate for 14 days ourselves if we have returned from any travel abroad or have flu type symptoms.   Self-isolation involves staying home and separate yourself from others with the purpose of preventing the spread of the virus, unless completely necessary which may include seeking medical care.  

How to self-isolate and keep your family as safe as possible:

  • Stay at home at all costs
  • Avoid public transportation
  • Only have visitors if essential
  • Keep away from seniors and people with chronic medical condition
  • Keep a minimum of 6 feet social distance with others
  • Arrange to have food and supplies dropped off at your door

And remember to always:

  • Cover your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze
  • Wash. Lather your hands for at least 20 seconds  with soap and water
  • Use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
  • Avoid touching your face.

We all need to pay attention to instructions from Public Health officials, take care of ourselves and others in self isolation and do our part to ensure a Safer Community Together.
