What The Living Fuck?


The article continues:

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) says COVID-19 testing is no longer available for everyone in a timely manner due to a surge in demand, so it’s asking anyone unable to access a test to assume they are infected with Omicron and self-isolate for 10 days from the time their symptoms began.

In a COVID-19 update, posted to OPH’s website on Monday, December 20, Associate Medical Officer of Health Dr. Sarah Funnell, and Medical Director Dr. Sarah Erdman explain household contacts of anyone in need of a test, regardless of their vaccination status, will also be directed to isolate. 

“This important change in contact management guidance is due to the significantly reduced vaccine effectiveness of two doses against the Omicron variant,” they wrote. “Please note that the situation is evolving rapidly, and guidance is subject to change quickly.”
