First and foremost, call your healthcare provider (a.k.a your family doctor)
- Before you show up in person, please call your healthcare provider if you’re worried you might have the coronavirus. If your symptoms are mild, your doctor might be able to advise you on how to treat your symptoms at home and provide proper precautions.

If you do not have symptoms of COVID-19 we strongly urge you to stay inside. The Liberty Village community can collaborate to prevent the spread of this pandemic by minimizing social contact. Please read below some helpful resources that can safely guide you through this rough few weeks.
- Instead of going to a physical grocery store with the risk of being exposed, here’s a list of online grocery stores that deliver to your doorstep!
- Walk or drive instead of taking public transit. If you’re walking on the sidewalk, make sure you’re at least one meter away from people.
- Shop online and support small local businesses in Liberty Village. If you need goods other than groceries, consider supporting local Liberty Village businesses online that might be struggling.
The best thing we can do right now as a community is support each other through this period of anxiety, uncertainty and social isolation. Do your absolute best to stay home so we can flatten the curve! In the meantime, use technology to keep social (Skype, FaceTime, Zoom) and there are plenty of online resources for stay-at-home fitness! Not only will it make you feel better physically but it does wonders for mental health.
We will get through this together.
