New report shows the weak spot in Canada's COVID-19 response

CTV News in Canada shows that while Canada has done well compared to other developed nations handling the COVID-19 pandemic, it came at a cost to its health-care workers.

  1. There is an exposure risk to COVID-19 in Canada. If you’ve recently travelled to, from or within Canada, you may have been exposed to COVID-19. We track exposures on planes, trains, inter-city or inter-provincial buses, and cruise ships. Being aware of the exposure risk can help you take the necessary steps to protect yourself and those around you.

    COVID-19 affects women and men differently.

    The coronavirus pandemic creates fear, worry and concern in the population at large and among certain groups in particular, such as older adults, care providers and people with underlying health conditions.

    Sedentary behaviour and low levels of physical activity can have negative effects on the health, well-being and quality of life of individuals. Self-quarantine can also cause additional stress and challenge the mental health of citizens.

    Physical activity and relaxation techniques can be valuable tools to help you remain calm and continue to protect your health during this time. WHO recommends 150 minutes of moderate-intensity or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week, or a combination of both.

    Visitors could travel to Canada from a country other than the US during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    If you’re travelling from a country other than the US, you must have written authorization from IRCC to fly to Canada.

    The written authorization is a one-time use authorization confirming that you’re exempt from the travel restrictions. It’s valid only for the period needed to travel.

    You should not book a flight to Canada until you get your written authorization.
