From the National Institute on Ageing

In November, the National Institute on Ageing released myCOVIDVisitRisk, an online decision aid designed by Dr. Samir Sinha and a team of experts to assist individuals, families, and friends in considering the risks associated with visiting with others during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

In all cases, Canadians are urged to follow all official COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions, but for people who need to care for others, or who live in areas with few restrictions, this tool will help assess the risks of visiting with others.

Using the best available scientific evidence and the input of leading experts in infectious diseases and epidemiology, this website has been designed to help people of different ages and states of health figure out how to more safely visit with others during the COVID-19 pandemic.

By working through the questions of this online decision aid, the NIA’s aim is to prepare you and your loved ones to better discuss the potential risks and benefits of visiting with each other and in the end make a well-informed choice on how to make any necessary visits as safe as possible.
