COVID-19 Public Resources

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 and others. PHO has created the following resources to explain various COVID-19 terms and behaviours to the general public. These resources are available in over 20 languages and are complementary to the current public, public health, and health care guidance available on the Ministry of Health's website.

Interested in using these resources outside of Ontario?

PHO does not require permission to use these documents. If you require them in a different format, please email communications@oahpp.ca.

For more information about COVID-19, please visit our COVID-19 page.
