People can contract coronaviruses after coming into contact with an infected person. Current evidence suggests person-to-person spread is efficient when there is close contact.
There is no vaccine or treatment to prevent coronaviruses. Most people with common coronavirus illness will recover on their own.
You can reduce your risk by taking precautions when travelling to areas where there is risk of coronaviruses.
If you are concerned that you have symptoms of COVID-19 such as fever, cough or difficulty breathing, contact your local public health authority for further instructions.
If you have travelled outside Canada, you can reduce the risk of spreading infection by following prevention measures when returning to Canada.
Travellers should expect increased health screening measures at points of entry for international destinations, including airports. Local authorities may impose control measures suddenly, including movement restrictions such as quarantines.
Some governments have implemented special entry and exit restrictions for their territory. Before travelling, verify with the foreign diplomatic mission of your destination to see if its authorities have implemented any specific restrictions related to this situation. These include entry requirements, border closures and flight suspensions.
To ensure you are aware of the latest developments on this evolving situation, we recommend:
- monitoring the news
