With reading week coming to an end, health authorities are still very clear that the risk of a coronavirus outbreak in Canada is low. We strongly encourage you to continue practicing proper health precautions, including washing your hands often and covering your mouth and nose with your arm when coughing or sneezing.

Whether you have been travelling or not, members of the McGill community who have flu-like symptoms should call 1 877 644-4545 (Info-Santé) instead of going in-person to the Wellness Hub or a medical clinic. The University’s coronavirus webpage remains the most up-to-date source of information for our community.

As you may have heard, health authorities announced yesterday a presumptive case of COVID-19 in the Montreal area. It is a case of a person who recently returned from travel abroad.

Despite this, health authorities are still very clear that the risk in Canada is low, and they are not recommending any additional measures to be taken by the general public. Frequent and thorough handwashing, as well as observing appropriate cough etiquette, are still the appropriate behaviours.

The University’s coronavirus webpage remains the most up-to-date source of information for our community.
