COVID-19 Basic Resources and Guidance

RNAO has taken decisive action since the start of the outbreak in updating our members and other health professionals, providing evidence-based information, as well as tools and resources to address this challenging situation.

Health Provider Hotline and Website

We encourage you to access the health provider hotline and website regarding questions about the outbreak, protocols, preparedness, and more. The toll free number is 1-866-212-2272, and the health provider website is updated regularly with useful resources. An important reminder that the health provider website and the toll free number are for you – as a health professional – and not for members of the general public.
