Providing Patient Care in a Pandemic

Please consult this page and CASLPO’s COVID-19 Information Page regularly for the latest information and for revisions to the Pandemic Practice Advice documents.

When you are seeing patients in-person, please follow the advice in these Pandemic Practice Advice documents. Always weigh the risk of seeing patients in-person and the transmission of the COVID-19 virus.

As COVID-19 evolves, the provincial and federal government continue to update their resources.  We encourage you to also regularly review the websites of the Ministry of Health and Public Health Ontario (PHO) for the most accurate, up-to-date information.
