COVID-19 (commonly known as Coronavirus Disease) is a contagious virus that spreads via human-to-human contact, particularly by way of contaminated droplets from coughing and sneezing. For the majority of people, the immediate risk of being exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19 is thought to be low. Older persons and persons with pre-existing medical or immuno-compromised conditions (such as high blood pressure, heart disease, lung disease, cancer or diabetes) are at higher risk as they appear to develop serious illness more often than others.

(Last Updated – 3/13/2020)
Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the health of the people we serve, Atos Medical Canada, Inc has decided to suspend most events for the next two months due to COVID-19, commonly known as Coronavirus Disease. Our intent is to resume these events starting in June, at which time, we anticipate the risks associated with the spread of this virus will be greatly diminished. However, due to the rapidly evolving situation, we will continue to monitor guidance and will provide any updates, if necessary.
