UPDATED*** COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe & Open

There are several risk factors that help drive transmission of COVID-19. Close contact is the highest risk. Limiting these risks is critical to keeping Ontario open and safe.

Personal and public health measures —such as physical distancing, staying home when ill even with mild symptoms, frequent handwashing and surface cleaning —have significant benefits and have been proven to limit COVID-19 transmission.It is critical the people of Ontario understand the risks of gatherings (crowds) in close contact in enclosed/indoor spaces to understand how to mitigate those and make informed choices.
