We know the COVID-19 pandemic is worrisome. Staying informed can help us feel better about managing our daily lives in this new world. Check the resources available on this page and on the City of Greater Sudbury website at www.greatersudbury.ca/COVID. We’re here to help.

Your community has come together to meet the needs of our valued residents. A partnership of the United Way Centraide North East Ontario, Volunteer Sudbury, Public Health Sudbury & Districts and the City of Greater Sudbury has launched a new program that connects older adults with services.

Stay safe. Stay informed. Stay positive. We’ll get through this together.

    Top 10 Tips for Wellness

    1. Wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face and limit non-essential travel.
    2. Your Doctor or Nurse Practitioner is there for you. Call for your health care needs. Don’t worry if you think it’s a small problem. It’s better to catch things before they become bigger.
    3. The Emergency Department is still open at the hospital for all medical emergencies.
    4. Home care services are still open for business.
    5. Take your prescription medications. If you can’t visit the pharmacy for refills, delivery is available.
    6. Eat well. If you can’t visit a grocery store, shopping and delivery are available. Drink lots of water and other caffeine-free beverages.
    7. Get enough sleep. Try not to watch the news too much if you find it upsetting. Get your information from reliable sources.
    8. Be creative. Paint, draw, bake, sing, read or rediscover a hobby like knitting or puzzles.
    9. Get some fresh air on your balcony, in your yard, walk around the neighbourhood or sit beside an open window.
    10. Stay in touch with family and friends by phone, mail or online if you use a computer. Schedule regular calls and try to talk to at least two people each day.
