Although some public health measures have been lifted in Ontario, you may choose to maintain some in your community based on a number of factors. Here, you will find information and resources that can be used to support those efforts, including resources and information on COVID-19 and variants; self-monitoring; isolation; tips to reduce the spread of COVID-19; masking; how to care for those with COVID-19; and other general information related to the illness.


These resources are provided by the Government of Canada (GC), the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC), Indigenous Services Canada (ISC), the Province of Ontario (Ontario), and the Ministry of Health (MOH). They are also sourced from partnered organizations like the Sioux Lookout First Nations Health Authority (SLFNHA), Weeneebayko Area Health Authority (WAHA), Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN), and the Independent First Nations Alliance (Independent First Nations Alliance), which offer many great resources including posters, graphics, and videos.
