Health and travel advisories
Nova Scotia’s department of health has several recommendations if you’re feeling unwell.
The Chief Medical Officer and physicians across Canada responding to the virus have indicated that currently the best precautions to protect yourself and others are the same you would take to avoid the flu.
The Government of Canada has issued an official travel advisory asking Canadians to avoid non-essential travel outside Canada until further notice.
Please be extremely mindful of those already taking advantage of the COVID-19 situation online in 3 primary ways:
- By creating new phishing attempts under the guise of COVID-19, trying to trick you into clicking links to new "information" or "helpful services"
- By creating new phishing attempts that emulate college business processes, ie: workflows, attached documents, etc.
- By preying on increased email traffic and a more frantic user population desperately trying to keep up with communications
Please slow down, remember your training, take a breath and consider that any email could be malicious right now.
