What should I do if I’m feeling sick?

If you think you have symptoms compatible with COVID-19 or have been in close contact with someone who has the virus you need to avoid contact with other individuals. This self-assessment tool can be used to determine your next steps (to self-monitor, self-isolate, visit an Assessment Centre or go to the Emergency Department). This national self-assessment tool will also direct you to your provincial website, for more geographically relevant information regarding next steps.

If you wish to speak with someone directly, you should contact your primary care provider (family physician) by phone or call your regional public health number (in Ontario, this is the Telehealth Ontario phone line: 1-866-797-0000). Current call wait-times may be several hours.
