Keeping our communities safe

To prevent the spread of COVID-19 within communities, visitors and residents are reminded to:

  • maintain physical distancing (2 m / 6 ft);
  • 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:
    • 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; and
    • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands;
  • stay home when ill.
