The COVID-19 pandemic has changed various aspects of our day-to-day lives, from the way we interact with others to how we take care of ourselves, others, and the environment in which we work and live. This is especially true for those that work in public health as they are in large part responsible for providing services and resources to support the improved the wellbeing of the population.
PHO has created the following resources to explain various COVID-19 terms and behaviours. These resources are intended to support public health professionals in dealing with methods of prevention, monitoring, environmental cleaning, isolation, and vaccines. These resources are complementary to the current public health, and health care guidance available on the Ministry of Health’s website.

PHO does not require permission to use these documents. If you require them in a different format, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
