Preventing the spread of illness

To help protect yourself and others:

  • practice physical distancing of 2m wherever you go
  • wear a mask or face covering if physical distancing of 2m cannot be maintained at all times
  • stay home, especially if you are sick or in self-isolation
  • wash hands often and well with soap and water for at least 20 seconds
  • cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or your elbow
  • avoid touching your face with unwashed hands
  • avoid travel outside Canada
  • self-isolate for 14 days if you were exposed to COVID-19 or recently returned from travel outside of Canada
  • clean and disinfect surfaces that are frequently touched
 

Self-isolation

Anyone experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 is required to self-isolate. Under self-isolation, a person is to remain on their property for the duration of the self-isolation period.

Learn more about who is required to self-isolate, how to self-isolate and how to prepare here.

If you are in mandatory self-isolation, you must follow these steps:

  • Do not go to work, other public areas or community settings.
  • Do not go outside for a walk through your neighbourhood or park. (This includes children in mandatory self-isolation.)
  • You can get fresh air in your yard, if you have one, but must remain on private property not accessible by others.
  • If you live in an apartment or condo building, you must stay inside and cannot use the elevators or stairwells to go outside. If your balcony is private and at least two metres away from your closest neighbour’s, you may go outside on the balcony.
  • Avoid close contact with other people, including household members, and especially seniors and those with chronic conditions, or a compromised immune system.
  • Watch for symptoms like fever, cough, sore throat, runny nose or difficulty breathing in yourself or family members.
  • Should any symptoms occur, complete a simple online self-assessment to determine next steps.
