Provinces broaden list of symptoms to allow for further COVID-19 testing
Beginning May 22, 2020, if you have any one of the following symptoms, contact your provincial government to get a further assessment on what the next step is.
- Fever, chills or sweats
- New or worsening cough
- Sore throat
- Shortness of breath
- Muscle aches
- Congestion or runny nose
- Hoarse voice
- Unusual fatigue
- Loss of sense of smell or taste
- Red, purple or blueish areas on the feet, toes or fingers
As Dr. Strang from Nova Scotia says, "Many of these are common symptoms for other ailments," such as hayfever or the common cold. "In most cases, if you have any of these symptoms, you should be directed to have testing done, not because you have COVID, but instead to rule out COVID."
Here's a simple comparison of the coronavirus and other flu- and cold-like symptoms - but always rely on the advice of your medical practitioner.

General safety priorities
Practicing appropriate hygiene everywhere including in the office, washroom, warehouse, moving truck and customer’s home or worksite.
Frequently washing hands with soap & hot water.
Avoiding touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Coughing or sneezing into your elbow or a tissue and dispose of tissues immediately in lined wastepaper receptacles.
Being sensitive when greeting people. CAM and all customers will understand that a simple verbal greeting will suffice as opposed to a handshake when you arrive at the customer’s home or worksite.
Trying to maintain a 2-metre distance between you and others.
Workers with health issues should not perform in-person estimates or be sent out on moving jobs.
Promote a tap-and-pay option or pre-approved credit cards to limit any handling of cash.
