In Isolation / Need Delivery?

Self-Isolation vs. Isolation

You are required to self-isolate for 14 days if:

  • You have recently returned from out-of-country; or
  • You have been in close contact with a person diagnosed with COVID-19.

Note: It is recommended that you self-isolate if you are at higher risk of contracting COVID-19. This includes those aged 65 and over, those with compromised immune systems and those with underlying medical conditions.

You are required to isolate if:

  • You are symptomatic with a fever, coughing or difficulty breathing (even if mild symptoms);
  • You have been you have been diagnosed with COVID-19; 
  • You are waiting for the results of a lab test for COVID-19; or
  • You have been advised to do so by our Public Health Authority.

Supplies Needed: The Public Health Agency of Canada has recommended that you have supplies at home while you’re isolating. These include: surgical masks, disposable gloves, paper towels, tissues, a thermometer, over-the-counter medication to treat fever, soap and cleaning products. The full list can be found here
