Be cautious of what you see on social media, refrain from spreading rumours, and ensure the information you do share comes from trusted sources. The Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health works closely with the Public Health Agency of Canada to ensure accurate information is provided as quickly as possible. Provincial and Federal authorities are in constant contact with the World Health Organization, so that we can provide guidance based on hard facts, evidence-tested protocols and best practices learned in other jurisdictions where the pandemic is further advanced.
