Dr. Eileen de Villa, Toronto’s medical officer of health, is concerned over new data that suggests that most people are waiting too long after developing symptoms before getting tested for COVID-19. Dr. de Villa says anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested as soon as possible and should self-isolate before and after getting their test.
