Residents are strongly encouraged to practice physical distancing, limit all public gatherings to five (5) or fewer people, avoid touching your face and thoroughly wash your hands with soap and water.  Hand sanitizer is suitable when soap and water is unavailable.  While outdoor municipal parks remain open, it is recommended to avoid playground equipment, which is a potentially high contact area.

The Government of Canada has a number of standard border measures in place to prevent communicable diseases from being introduced to or spreading in Canada.

Additional measures have been implemented including messaging on arrivals screens at the Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver international airports reminding travellers to inform a Border Services Officer if they are experiencing flu-like symptoms. In addition, a health screening question has been added to electronic kiosks.

All non-essential border crossings are no longer allowed. Crossings are for commercial trade only to keep Ontario & Canada's supply chain functioning.
