TORONTO, Dec. 28, 2023—It’s beginning to look a lot like cold and cough season, everywhere you go. Flu, cold, COVID and RSV are all circulating together again in Ontario, the proverbial unwanted guests at our seasonal gatherings.
Ontario’s doctors have some tips for trying to stay healthy at this time of year as people spend more time indoors and in closer contact with one another.
“No one wants to be sick, especially during the holidays,” said Dr. Andrew Park, president of the Ontario Medical Association. “But this is peak season for respiratory viruses. There are some commonsense precautions people can take to reduce their risk of getting sick and reduce pressure on emergency departments and other parts of the health-care system.”
The Ontario Medical Association represents Ontario’s 43,000-plus physicians, medical students and retired physicians, advocating for and supporting doctors while strengthening the leadership role of doctors in caring for patients. Our vision is to be the trusted voice in transforming Ontario’s health-care system.
