COVID-19 continues to circulate in the community. And the circulating levels of other respiratory viruses like influenza and RSV are high.
CHEO is facing unprecedented volumes of infants and children coming to the hospital with respiratory symptoms from various viruses.
Every single person who wears a well-fitted mask when indoors and/or in crowded public spaces makes a difference.
Same with every person who stays home when feeling sick.
We support businesses, workplaces and organizations that encourage and welcome mask wearing.
It all matters. And it all helps.
You can also help the situation by getting your flu shot and your COVID-19 bivalent booster (or whichever dose you’re currently eligible for).
You can find info about where & how to get those on our website OttawaPublicHealth.ca.
