If You Have Symptoms of COVID-19

Symptoms of COVID-19 are generally mild to moderate for most people who become infected. In some cases, they can be severe. Most people with mild to moderate symptoms can recover on their own at home. Please do not call 911 or show up at the hospital if you are not experiencing severe illness.

If you are experiencing mild to moderate (non-severe) symptoms:

  • Visit a COVID-19 Assessment Centre to be tested.
  • If you have a child under 1 year of age who has symptoms, call Telehealth Ontario at 1-866-797-0000 or go to CHEO.
  • If you are 70 years or older, have special considerations, or cannot get to a COVID-19 Assessment Centre, call the EOHU at 613-933-1375 or 1-800-267-7120

If you are having difficulty breathing or experiencing other severe symptoms:

Call 911 or go to a hospital emergency room immediately. Advise them of your symptoms and travel history.
