Toronto Public Health is partnering with COVID Near You to monitor the frequency of COVID-like symptoms in Toronto. COVID Near You relies on voluntary participation from the general public, asking you to take a few seconds to report if you or your family members have been healthy or sick.
Toronto Public Health is asking residents to help them learn how symptoms of COVID-19 may be moving through our community by completing a short survey about their current symptoms. A link to the COVID Near You survey can be found here on the Reduce Virus Spread page.
COVID Near You uses crowdsourced data to visualize maps to help citizens and public health agencies identify current and potential hotspots for the recent pandemic coronavirus, COVID-19.The website is a sister tool of Flu Near You, created by Ending Pandemics and Boston Children's Hospital in 2012 and maintained by the Boston Children’s Hospital team.
