If you have COVID-19

Concerned that you have COVID-19 or that you have come in contact with someone who has COVID-19? There are steps you can take to prevent the spread further.


1. Stay at home unless you need medical care


2. Isolate yourself from others

3. Maintain personal hygiene

  • The majority of people who have contracted COVID-19 will only experience mild symptoms and can recover without medical attention. Stay home and do not expose yourself to public places unless you absolutely need medical attention.

  • Avoid taking public transportation, taxis, or ride-sharing.

  • If you believe you have COVID-19, you should avoid being in contact with other people as much as possible.


  • Try containing yourself to a room and a separate bathroom if possible. Avoid using public areas in your home, and avoid high-touch points.


  • Use a mask or cloth covering your mouth

       and nose.

  • Wash your hands with hot water and soap for 20 seconds. Do this often, especially after blowing your nose, coughing/sneezing, using the washroom, before and after eating, or preparing a meal.


  • Use hand sanitizer.


  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue or by using the crook of your arm if you don’t have a tissue.


  • If you are feeling sick and must interact with people in shared spaces, use a face mask. This will help protect the people around you.


4. Clean high-touch surfaces and avoid sharing household items

  • Wash all high-touch surfaces every day. Washing countertops, handles, and other common touch points will help reduce the spread in your household.


  • Avoid sharing personal or household items as much as possible. For example, try using the same cup.


5. Monitor your symptoms

* Call 911 if you need medical care.

  • It’s important to keep track of your health to see how you are progressing. If you have a fever or cough, keep tabs on your temperature and your ability to breathe.


  • Seek medical attention if: you are having problems breathing, you have pain/pressure in your chest, you have confusion.

  • Notify the operator that you may have COVID-19.


  • Wear a face mask (if possible) before EMS arrives.
