Words from our Health Leaders

Statement from Black Health Leaders on COVID-19’s impact on Black Communities in Ontario

We are in the midst of a global pandemic, one that will fundamentally transform our province. Early losses and rapid escalation have already shown us glimpses of the devastation COVID-19 will leave in its wake. This is an unprecedented moment. To change this pandemic’s trajectory we must be willing to ask difficult questions, including asking who is left behind in current responses and which communities are at increased risk of harm. We will not contain COVID-19 without bringing critical analysis and differential population health actions to our pandemic response.

Do I need to get a COVID-19 test if I don’t have symptoms?

If you’re asymptomatic – showing no symptoms of COVID-19 – you’re able to transmit the virus to others. Asymptomatic cases make up a significant proportion of COVID-19 cases. Getting tested is one of the best ways to protect your loved ones, friends, and entire community from COVID-19 virus.
