Questions about COVID-19? Here are some things you should know:
Symptoms can include fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, very similar to a cold or the flu. Some people can develop a more serious illness. Those most at risk are the elderly and people with serious chronic illnesses such as heart, lung or kidney disease. If you develop symptoms, contact public health authorities.
To prevent the virus from spreading, experts recommend washing your hands frequently and coughing up your sleeve. They also recommend minimizing contact with others, staying home as much as possible, and maintaining a two-meter distance from others if you go out. In situations where you cannot keep a safe distance from others, public health officials recommend using a face mask or non-medical coating to prevent spreading respiratory droplets that can carry the virus. . In some provinces and municipalities across the country, masks or face coverings are now mandatory in indoor public spaces.
