Social Distancing and Preventative Measures Infographics

To reduce the spread of COVID-19, we need everyone to stay home, as much as possible. Avoid close contact and keep a distance of 6 feet (2 metres) from others. Everyone has a role to play. The actions you take will protect you, loved ones and those most vulnerable in our community. It’s time to step up, not out.

Limit your trips outdoors

  • Minimize trips for groceries, medication and other essentials, ideally to once a week

  • Offer to pick up essentials for neighbours, especially vulnerable community members

  • Ideally, order supplies online

  • Avoid crowded places when exercising or walking the dog outdoors

  • Consider doing aerobics or online exercise classes at home

  • Limit the number of people in elevators to keep distance and use an elbow to press buttons

  • Wash or sanitize your hands when entering and exiting buildings

  • Use tap to pay rather than handling money

  • Greet others from a distance with a wave or a nod

When taking transit or taxi

  • Travel during non-peak hours to avoid prolonged close contact with others

  • Take shorter trips rather than one long trip

  • With taxi and rideshare, sit in the back and open windows

  • Wash or sanitize your hands often and avoid touching your face

Avoid physical gatherings

  • Work from home, if possible

  • Facilitate virtual meetings (video or teleconferencing)

  • Cancel all group gatherings, parties or playdates with other children

  • Gatherings with more than 5 people are not allowed (excluding people who live together)

  • Do not go to playgrounds

  • Schedule virtual parties or playdates

  • Connect with loves ones by phone, email video or social media

  • Do not visit loved ones in long-term care homes, retirement homes or other care settings

If sick, stay home and self-isolate

  • People are most contagious when they are sick, or 48 hours before they show symptoms

  • Limit contact with household members

  • Refer to fact sheets on how to self-isolate
