From Toronto Public Health:
We are writing to provide you with an update on the COVID-19 situation and response efforts that Toronto Public Health is leading, and provide you with information that your members may find helpful.
COVID-19 is not circulating locally in our community. To date everyone in Toronto who has contracted this virus has had a history of travel to an affected area, specifically China, Iran, and Egypt. In Toronto, we are actively monitoring cases of COVID-19. These people are currently at home in self-isolation.
As March break approaches and as people may have plans to travel, we recommend reviewing the Public Health Agency of Canada's travel notices link. The Public Health Agency of Canada is advising people with a recent history of travel in Iran to self-isolate for 14 days after their last day in Iran. This is similar to the advice being given to individuals who have travelled to Hubei Province, China. Toronto residents who have travelled in these areas are asked to call Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600 within 24 hours of when they arrive in Toronto to receive support and further instructions.
More information for organizers of large gatherings and businesses is below:
You can also call Toronto Public Health at 416-338-7600, Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Translation is available in many languages.
For more information and for regular updates, please visit our website at www.toronto.ca/coronavirus.
If your organization has any specific questions, please email our TPH Liaison team at TPHLiaison@toronto.ca.
