Canada’s top public health official says COVID-19 poses a serious health risk to all Canadians and the window to “flatten the curve” is narrow.
Dr. Theresa Tam says Canadians need to act now to curb the spread of the novel form of coronavirus.
She repeated previous government advice to avoid travel outside of Canada, self-isolate for 14 days if returning from a trip abroad, and practise social distancing.
She says employers should look into contingency plans to allow staff to work from home.
