Managing COVID-19 At Home

Advice for self-isolation

All COVID-19 positive patients and household contacts are required to isolate. 

Managing your COVID-19 symptoms at home

The Omicron variant of COVID-19 is milder, but more infectious. This means most of us will likely get infected, so it's important to know what to do when it happens. Here are some great resources to help you manage your symptoms.
