COVID-19: Patient & Family Resources

Caring During COVID

At McMaster Children’s Hospital, we know that many of our patients, families, and community members are experiencing difficult times during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To help provide some of our expertise to those caring for each other at home, our experts will be submitting videos to this playlist, hoping to bring some help to those in need while caring for others during COVID-19.

Feeling Unwell?

The Ontario Ministry of Health has created a new tool to help people self-assess for COVID-19. Unless you are experiencing an emergency, please use this self-assessment tool before seeking medical help for possible COVID-19.

If you are having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms, call 911 immediately. Advise them of your symptoms.
