TORONTO -- Is it a cold? The flu? Or is it COVID-19? Canadian doctors may have no choice but to test everyone with respiratory symptoms this coming fall as students and parents anxiously gear up to go

back to school in a few short weeks.

Doctors’ questions include: should patients exhibiting respiratory symptoms be sent straight to COVID testing centres? Should they be triaged differently? What about headaches, diarrhea, unexplained chest pains or shortness of breath? And what should doctors do if they or their own children get sick?

“If she were asymptomatic and transmitted it to me, I may not have any idea that I'm potentially infectious to others.” And if a doctor does test positive, they have to close their practice and go into quarantine for two weeks. Patients who were in direct contact with the doctor in the prior two weeks need to be notified and tested as well.
