The risk of contracting SARS is very low in community settings. SARS cases have
been linked to direct contact with someone who is already ill with SARS or
travel to or from endemic countries.

Anyone who believes they may have SARS symptoms are urged to call the Toronto
Public Health SARS Hotline at 416-338-7600 or Telehealth Ontario at
1-866-797-0000 (TTY 1-866-797-0007). Additional information about SARS can be
obtained at http://www.toronto.ca/health/, www.health.gov.on.ca
and www.sars.gc.ca.
