COVID-19 Caregiver Tip Sheets

Countries around the world are actively working to contain the COVID-19 pandemic. One strategy is social distancing or avoiding interaction with others. While this strategy is necessary, it can contribute to feelings of isolation and affect a person’s mental health. This is true for family caregivers and the person they support.

If you are concerned that you may have been exposed to, or experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please contact Telehealth at 1.866.797.0000, your doctor or your local public health unit. You can also use the self-assessment tool. The Ontario government is asking that you not visit an assessment centre unless you are showing symptoms and to avoid calling 911 unless it’s an emergency.
