The World Health Organization (WHO) refers to symptoms lasting for weeks or months after a COVID-19 infection as post COVID-19 condition. Some studies have reported later symptoms in patients with a severe COVID-19 infection. For example, those who were hospitalized or needed intensive care during recovery. However, post COVID-19 condition may also occur for people with mild or asymptomatic infection who were asked to isolate at home during the infectious phase.
Clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces to lower the chance of COVID-19 spreading in your home, workplace and public spaces.
People infected with COVID-19 can shed the virus through their stool, even if they don't have any symptoms. Testing a community's sewage (wastewater) can tell us if COVID-19 is increasing or decreasing in that community. Our scientists have developed a pan-Canadian wastewater network to monitor the spread of COVID-19 in Canada. This is in collaboration with provincial, territorial and municipal governments and academia across Canada.
What you, and what communities can do to lower the spread of COVID-19 in settings including social services, workplaces, outdoors, community, religious, transport and remote and Indigenous communities.
While diseases can make anyone sick, some Canadians are more at risk of getting an infection and developing severe complications due to their health, social and economic circumstances. Organizations, staff and volunteers play an important role in helping to prevent these populations from getting or spreading the COVID-19 virus. Start by sharing simple things they can do to help keep themselves and others healthy, guide them to help if they develop any signs and symptoms and learn ways help care for sick clients recovering from COVID-19.
Parents, caregivers and children across the country are facing new challenges as the COVID-19 pandemic affects our daily work and home routines. Schools, daycares and most workplaces have closed, and children and parents are suddenly at home full-time.
