• Practice physical distancing at all times.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Sneeze or cough into your arm or sleeve.
  • Consider a wave in place of a handshake, a hug or kiss.
  • Reduce your exposure to crowded places by shopping or using transit during non-peak hours.
  • Encourage those you know are sick to stay home until they no longer have symptoms.
  • If you become ill, stay home until you are no longer showing symptoms. Contact your health care professional or local public health authority and tell them your symptoms. They will give you advice about what to do next.
  • Some people may transmit COVID-19 even though they do not show any symptoms. Wearing a mask, including a non-medical mask or face covering (i.e. constructed to completely cover the nose and mouth without gaping, and secured to the head by ties or ear loops) can help protect others around you.
