What is COVID-19?

COVID-19 is an illness caused by a coronavirus, which are common and typically associated with mild illnesses, similar to the common cold. However, COVID-19 can seriously impact the elderly or those with compromised immune systems.

Those who are infected with COVID-19 may have little to no symptoms. You may not know you have symptoms of COVID-19 because they are similar to a cold or flu. Symptoms may take up to 14 days to appear after exposure to COVID-19. For more information, visit canada.ca/coronavirus

What to do if you have symptoms

If you become ill with COVID-19 symptoms, you should self-isolate. Stay home and avoid close contact with others, including those in your home. Contact Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000 and your primary care provider’s office.

What you can do to prevent infection

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 15 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are ill
  • Stay home when you are ill
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then immediately throw the tissue in the garbage and wash your hands
  • If you don’t have a tissue, sneeze or cough into your sleeve or arm
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

If you have cold or flu-like symptoms, whether or not you have tested positive for COVID-19, please be considerate of other residents and REFRAIN from visiting public facilities in our community, i.e. Management offices. Tenants who are self-isolating or require emergency repairs please contact our Resident Helpline at 1.877.638.2271 or email customerservice@metcap.com
