Are you a volunteer?
Many people want to offer help to those who need it the most during this time of physical distancing and isolation. Now more than ever, initiatives designed to help people in need are important.
To maximize the impact of those initiatives and reduce the risks of spreading the virus, it is essential that each group take the right precautions and follow public health recommendations: the recommendations quickly
change as the situation evolves.
Flatten.ca was put in place mainly for public awarness, and in hopes of flattening the curve and minimizing the spread of COVID-19, by informing Canadians and the health system of the current situation. This website is based on a voluntary participation. Every person who fills out the form helps the representativeness of the information found on the website.
The information allows monitoring the evolution in the population, without identifying specific individuals. Everyone is encouraged to participate, specially people who have symptoms of COVID-19.
Share your experience of the COVID-19 pandemic
The COHESION study, led by a team of Canadian researchers, assesses the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on Canadians across the country. The team wishes to better understand how our daily activities, social interactions and mental health will have been affected during and after the pandemic through online questionnaires and mobile application.
Results will be shared with decision makers and public health experts to guide and inform ongoing and future public health interventions for communities and individuals alike.
