If you have travelled to mainland China, you may have come in contact with the novel coronavirus. For 14 days after the day you left mainland China, the Public Health Agency of Canada asks that you:
- monitor your health for fever, cough and difficulty breathing; and,
- avoid crowded public spaces and places where you cannot easily separate yourself from others if you become ill.
If you start having symptoms, isolate yourself from others as quickly as possible. Immediately call a health care professional or local public health authority (see below). Describe your symptoms and travel history. They will provide advice on what you should do.
To further protect those around you, wash your hands often and cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
