A new type of virus, known as COVID-19, is causing an outbreak of respiratory (lung) disease. The severity of this illness can vary from person to person. COVID-19 can cause a range of symptoms, including fever, cough, sore throat, and shortness of breath. These symptoms can appear in a few days or up to 14 days after being exposed to the virus. For some people, the symptoms are like having a cold; for others they may be severe or life-threatening. The virus is transmitted via droplets during close, unprotected contact with an infected person, or by touching an infected surface and then the mouth, nose, or eyes.

Symptoms of COVID-19, which is the disease caused by the 2019 novel coronavirus, range from mild — like the flu and other common respiratory infections — to severe.

The most common symptoms include fever, cough, difficulty breathing, muscle aches, fatigue, headache, sore throat and runny nose.  Complications from COVID-19 can include serious conditions, like pneumonia or kidney failure and, in some cases, death. If you have any of these symptoms, YOU ARE NOT PERMITTED TO TEST WITH OFAI. If you begin to feel symptoms of COVID-19, you should stay home and self-isolate immediately and take a self-assessment to help determine how to seek further care. Only call 911 if it is an emergency.

COVID-19 is spread mainly from person to person through close contact, for example, in a household, workplace or health care centre. There is no vaccine available to protect against COVID-19, but there are things you should do to help prevent the spread of coronavirus that causes the disease.

Take these everyday steps to reduce exposure to the virus and protect your health: wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer, sneeze and cough into your sleeve, avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth, avoid contact with people who are sick, stay home if you are sick

Everyone must practice physical distancing to reduce exposure to other people — this means staying at least two metres away from anyone. You are required to use a face covering (non-medical mask such as a cloth mask or bandana) to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 while at the test facility.
