COVID-19 (Coronavirus disease 2019) is an infectious disease that has been declared a global pandemic. On 13 March 2020, the Government of Canada issued a travel advisory against non-essential travel outside of Canada because of the COVID-19 outbreak. We recommend that all members monitor any Canadian government announcements or advisories related to the outbreak.
