Self-Isolation for All International Travellers

 

The Grey Bruce Health Unit urgently reminds all international travellers of the requirement to self-isolate for fourteen days, beginning upon the first day of their return to Canada.

 

Self-isolation applies to all persons returning from international travel, whether or not they are showing any symptoms of COVID-19 virus.

 

Self-isolation means staying at home and avoiding contact with other people to help prevent the potential spread of disease to others in your community.

 

Self-isolation means to:

  • stay at home
  • monitor yourself for symptoms, even if mild, for 14 days
  • avoid contact with others

 

If you develop symptoms, even if mild, stay home, avoid other people. Take the Health Canada or Ontario Ministry of Health online self-assessment and take any action as advised from the results of that assessment.
