Peel residents are encouraged to practise these basic measures:

·  Cover your nose and mouth with your elbow or a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it. Wash your hands after that.

·  Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after you cough or sneeze. If your hands are not visibly soiled, use an alcohol-based hand rub.

·  Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth. Germs spread this way.

·  Try to avoid close contact with sick people.

·  Stay home from work or school and limit contact with others if you get sick.

·  See your local health care provider or contact TeleHealth at 1-866-797-0000 if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms, making sure you mention your travel history.

Peel Public Health:

·  has implemented its urgent response plan

·  is in daily contact with key health-care partners and agencies, and

·  is providing direction on preventive measures to be taken.

The Region will continue to monitor the situation closely.
