COVID-19 a rapidly evolving situation and the risk assessment may change daily. It is important to try and keep the current situation in perspective. Social media and news outlets can amplify misinformation. Sites that include accurate information include the World Health Organization, the Public Health Agency of Canada and the Ministry of Health Ontario .

Follow prevention tips to stay healthy. Washing your hands often and properly is the most effective way to stop the spread of disease. Visit the CDC website for information on how to wash your hands effectively. 

Throughout this ongoing and ever-changing pandemic, the OAVT has been in regular contact with the CVO, OVMA, RVTTC and other stakeholders such as government officials, heads of the veterinary technology college programs, and infection control professionals. The OAVT has been able to share our members’ concerns and experiences, and we are frequently collaborating with these partners to tackle our common challenges.  

OAVT staff have compiled as many resources as possible, and we will update these resources as newer links and information become available.
