When there are symptoms of suspected acute respiratory inflammation, what should you do?

When there are symptoms of suspected acute respiratory infection, you need:

  • Consult a health professional immediately. It is necessary to call for notice before you visit about your recent trip and symptoms.
  • Self-quarantine, avoid maximum contact with others.
  • Do not travel while sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a paper towel or elbow (not your hand) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or alcohol-containing hand sanitizer at least 60%.
