Self-isolation

Self-isolation means staying at home when you are sick with symptoms of COVID-19. This means you separate yourself from others, including from the people you live with, as much as possible. The purpose of self-isolation is to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to others in your home and your community. 

Please see Self-Isolation Instructions for Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) webpage by Ottawa Public Health for information.
