Self-assessment for COVID-19

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 tool before seeking medical help for possible COVID-19.

Self-assessment tool: https://www.ontario.ca/page/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-self-assessment

From their website

If you think you have 2019 novel coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms or have been in close contact with someone who has it, use this self-assessment to help determine if you need to seek further care.

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


Our hospitals and clinics remain open for scheduled appointments. The situation is evolving rapidly. If something changes, we will update patients and the community as soon as possible. Please continue checking our website and social media pages for updates.
