| Lockdown, Self-Islation, Social Distancing:coronoa virus, protection and prevention
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As per Ottawa Chief Medical officer everyone should practice social distance of one meter, stay at home, go out only for essential trips to help to flatten the curve.
Ottawa residents are advised to avoid all public assembly, big or small. In Ottawa all masjids, churches and synagogues, city recreation centers and sports facilities and parks are closed until further notice or at least until April 3, 2020.
Let us take simple steps to protect ourselves and help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases, the coronavirus:
Coronavirus symptoms are similar to those of the common flu. They include fever, dry cough and shortness of breath but no running nose. If you are not sure if you are sick, it is best to stay home and monitor your symptoms. These can appear anywhere from two to 14 days after exposure.
So far, all of those diagnosed with COVID-19 in Ottawa were infected while travelling — or else through close contact with someone who came back with the disease.
Canada ha as of today March 16, 377 cases about 90% related to travel or close contact of those.
If any one has travelled or arrived from other affected countries, if they show some signs, please go to Ottawa Corona virus testing centre at Brewer Park Arena
