What to do if you have cold, flu and COVID-19 symptoms

If your symptoms are severe and potentially life-threatening (e.g. shortness of breath or chest pain), please call 9-1-1 immediately or go to your nearest hospital emergency department.

If your symptoms are not life-threatening, take the Ontario Government’s COVID-19 Self-Assessment(opens in a new tab) for recommendations on what to do next. Recommended next steps may include self-isolating or, if you are at higher risk of severe illness, seeking COVID-19 testing and treatment like the Paxlovid pill.
