Keeping our communities safe
In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within communities, the public is advised to:
- maintain physical distancing (2m / 6ft);
- wear a community face mask when physical distancing is difficult to maintain;
- limit contact with people at higher risk, such as older adults and those with chronic health conditions;
- clean and disinfect high-touch surfaces often;
- frequently wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom, when preparing food and before eating. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available;
- when coughing or sneezing:
o cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand;
o dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards; and
o avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
