How you can help reduce risks

Follow healthy hygiene practices:

  • Clean your hands often
  • Limit time with others as much as possible
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a face mask
  • Regularly self-monitor for any symptoms
  • Maintain 6 feet distance as work duties permit
  • Greet with a wave instead of a handshake, a kiss or a hug
  • Avoid sharing any objects that cannot be easily cleaned (headsets, etc.)

If possible:

  • Stay home as much as possible, including for meals and entertainment
  • Shop or take public transportation during off­-peak hours
  • Use technology to keep in touch with friends and family outside your household
  • Use food delivery services or online shopping
  • Exercise at home or outside away from others.

If you think you have COVID-19:

  • Separate yourself from others as soon as you have symptoms
  • If you are outside the home when a symptom develops, go home immediately and avoid taking public transit
  • Stay home and follow the advice of your Public Health Authority, who may recommend isolation
  • Call ahead to a health care provider if you are ill and seeking medical attention
  • Call your supervisor and do not go to work if you are sick
