Canada’s Strategy to deal against COVID-19:
In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 within communities and across the country, all Canadians are advised to:
• stay at home unless you have to go to work
• talk to your employer about working at home if possible
• avoid all non-essential trips in your community
• do not gather in groups
• limit contact with people at higher risk, such as older adults and those in poor health
• go outside to exercise but stay close to home
• if you leave your home, always keep a distance of at least 2 arms lengths (approximately 2 meters) from others
• household contacts (people you live with) do not need to distance from each other unless they are sick or have travelled in the last 14 days
You can go for a walk if you:
• have not been diagnosed with COVID-19
• do not have symptoms of COVID-19
• have not travelled outside of Canada in the past 14 days
• are not in quarantine (self-isolating)
• are not isolating
If you go out for a walk, do not congregate and always practice physical (social) distancing by keeping at least 2 meters apart from others at all times.
• avoiding crowded places and non-essential gatherings
• avoiding common greetings, such as handshakes
• limiting contact with people at higher risk like older adults and those in poor health
• keeping a distance of at least 2 arms-length (approximately 2 meters) from others
• wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom and when preparing food
• use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
• when coughing or sneezing:
• cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand
• Dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards.
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
