​​​​​TBDHU recommends layers of protection to reduce the risk of getting and spreading infections by:

  • Monitor for symptoms and stay home if sick to avoid spreading infections to others.
  • Wear a well-fitted mask in indoor spaces, especially when around vulnerable people or when recovering from illness.
  • Stay up to date on all vaccines including the seasonal flu shot and all doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Wash hands often, for at least 15 seconds with soap and warm water, or by using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or elbow and put tissues in the garbage right away.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.
  • Keep indoor spaces well ventilated (i.e. open windows).
  • Be familiar with the Ontario screening tool, to self-assess and know what to do next.
