Physical Distancing

Physical distancing means staying at least two (2) meters, or six (6) feet apart from those not in your household. It’s something everyone can do to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in our communities. When physical distancing is not possible indoors, wear a non-medical mask or face covering.

Keep your circle of contacts small

If you are diagnosed with COVID-19 you need to know everyone you came in close contact with in the 2 days before you became sick.

Work from home

  • Work from home if your work place allows
  • Join meetings through teleconference or video conference, contact those you work with through email or phone
  • Limit face-to-face contact with others is our best protection against COVID-19.

Use online, home delivery, and curbside pick-up shopping options

  • Continue to support local businesses using online, home delivery, and curbside pick-up options.
  • Businesses, services, and organizations are encouraged to provide those options

Take extra precautions if you:

  • are aged 65 and over
  • have a weakened immune  system
  • have medical conditions
  • are in close contact with those who are at higher risk (listed above)
Stay 2 metres or 6 feet apart from others not in your household.

Ways to protect yourself and others:

  • Washing hands frequently with soap and water
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow or a tissue
  • Stay home if you are not feeling well
  • Limit touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • Keep your circle of contacts small
  • Wear a mask in indoor public spaces
  • Maintain a distance of two meters from others as much as possible
  • Don’t share items like drinking glasses and water bottles
  • Frequently clean surfaces like taps, doorknobs, tables and countertops
