-Self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19 for 10 days from potential exposure.

-Self-isolate immediately if symptoms

-Seek testing if symptoms occur.

-Visit phsd.ca/COVID-19 to learn more about self-monitoring, self-isolation, symptoms, and testing.

If needed, COVID-19 testing appointments can be arranged through the Health Sciences North Assessment Centre: the preferred option is to request an appointment online (Health Sciences North, https://secure.hsnsudbury.ca/COVID19AppointmentRequest) or call 705.671.7373 during regular business hours.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts lists low-risk exposures at phsd.ca/COVID-19/data. Individual public notices will no longer be issued for low-risk exposures identified in the community; however, the details will continue to be posted online. Public Health will continue to issue wider public notification in situations that involve a high-risk to the public due to an exposure, requiring enhanced public health measures.

Public Health Sudbury & Districts is reminding everyone to follow public health measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 including the more transmissible variants of concern. The safest options are to limit close contact to your own household members, stay home and do not attend work or school when ill, avoid non-essential travel, and remember to practise physical distancing, wear your mask, and wash your hands. For all outings, continue to screen yourself for symptoms and practise COVID-safe behaviours.
