Government of Canada Covid Resources:
Covid-19 Information
Covid-19 Self Assessment Tool
Covid-19 Exposure Notification App
The new COVID Alert app for your iPhone or Android devices. Already operating in Ontario with other provinces due to follow suit shortly. But even if you live outside Ontario, it’s still helpful to download COVID Alert now so you will be ready to roll once it is activated in your province.  The app notifies you if you have been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for Covid-19, or if you test positive and notify the app, others who have been close to you will be notified.
 
Online Activities:
Host your regular indoor activities via a voice or video chat.  Have a Ladies Dinner In, Friday Night Drinks, Wednesday Afternoon Tea and use a video group call to “visit”. Have an audio chat with friends as you play online games or knit. Get Creative – Stay Connected!
