COVID-19 is a serious health threat, and the situation is evolving daily. The risk will vary between and within communities, but given the increasing number of cases in Canada, the Government of Canada has deemed the risk to Canadians as high.
This does not mean that all Canadians will get the disease. It means that there is already a significant impact on our health care system. If we do not flatten the epidemic curve now, the increase of COVID-19 cases could impact health care resources available to Canadians.
CK Public Health is continuously monitoring the situation and proactively working with local, provincial and federal partners to manage and respond.
