Announcing an All-Virus Approach

 

Dr. Kieran Moore Announced last week that the province of Ontario is moving away from COVID-19-specific guidance in favour of an "all-virus approach," meaning the new guidelines will apply to other illnesses such as the flu as well.

Here are the guidelines Dr. Moore outlined for the general public:

  • If you have symptoms of any respiratory illness, stay home until symptoms have improved for at least 24 hours.

  • If you have a fever, stay home until it's completely gone.

  • If you have gastrointestinal symptoms, stay home until symptoms have improved for at least 48 hours.

  • After isolating at home, wear a mask in public for 10 days since the onset of symptoms.

  • If sick, avoid non-essential visits to vulnerable or older people for a full 10 days starting the day after symptoms appear — including visits to high-risk settings such as long-term care homes and hospitals.

  • If you're in the same household as someone who is sick or tested positive for COVID-19, mask in public spaces, even if you feel better, and avoid vulnerable individuals and settings for 10 days after exposure. Isolate immediately if you develop symptoms.

Further to the guidelines noted above, Dr. Moore emphasized these three points:

  • continue wearing a mask when "it's right for you", 

  • be up to date with all vaccinations, and 

  • stay home if you are sick.

 

Let us continue to pray for one another - especially for those in the world who are most impacted by the pandemic due to poverty or a lack of medical resources
