“Ontario’s public health system has shown remarkable responsiveness to the 2019 novel coronavirus. That’s in large part thanks to the dedication of the province’s public health officials and everyone working on the front lines of our health care system, all of whom are effectively monitoring for, detecting and containing this virus.

As we learn more about the 2019 novel coronavirus, related tools and procedures are getting more precise and more effective.
